Should You Chance Upon This Heavy Heart
Should you chance upon this heavy heart,
This loricate lump of love and muscle.
Would you hear, when prised apart,
Whispered wings or crisp bags rustle?
Should you dance within it's haunted halls,
Complete with fruit filled fountain,
Would you leave light footfalls,
Not leave me up a mountain?
Should you glance through the whetstone panes,
Of it's tear stained glass,
Would you follow the same old lanes,
Towards your own grabbled greener grass?
Should you chance upon this tender loving, misread heart,
Riddled with good intention,
Would you care that even though love doth smart,
I spill it without exception?
