I’m Not Heartless
The white flowers fade
to nothing on the trees,
Like your plastic love for me.
Rain comes, my stone eyes reabsorb all the darkness
My mind replays your brutal cold words,
They are heated coals in my heart,
The darkness fades in my eyes,
As they feel the need to cry,
As I find myself dreaming
Right next to you,
Uneasiness settles inside me
And wraps itself around my lungs,
Making it nearly impossible to breath,
Silently I remind myself how this is forever.
For better or for worse,
For richer and for poorer
Through sickness and health,
To love and cherish,
Your love is like chains shackling my heart;
I won’t hate you
That’s just another reason to keep you here.
And you and I don’t belong.
