I have poured out my heart
on several stages and pages
but love won’t let me be,
it never departs or diminishes.
I have bailed my heart from the
bars and battles of passions
but love won’t set me free,
It holds me tight with delight.
I sometimes choose to lose,
refusing to wake up and show up
but love won’t let me fail,
it nullifies my flaws to qualify me.
I sometimes give my heart away
to be crushed on thorny altars
but love won’t let me bleed,
it seals and heals me eternally.
My heart has been poisoned
with sweet lies and deadly truths,
but love won’t let me die,
it detoxifies and fortifies me.
Whenever I choose to live out loud,
faking happiness and flaring hope,
love won’t let me breathe,
it buries me till joy blooms again.
