but WE could

Keeper of my own heart

Guardian of feelings

Barricade of fear

I won’t consume another fling

God knows I can’t afford another heartbreak

I find refuge in isolation






Lapse in time




Show me something real

Force me to take another chance

Re-open my eyes, as if

it was the first time

electricity pulsing

dilated eyes sparked

mind sprinting

heart engorged


Air to my lungs

Help me breathe

I’ll let you in
