Heavy Hence The Heart - Poem by James Lewis

Heavy hence the heart you came, look deep into my soul, the window leads to which you'll see our past and recent woes.

Sometimes you have to lose it all before you can attain, the happiness which binded you, so this is what I say,

Our ups and downs, our rights our lefts we got so out of sync, it once was good and then turned bad as fast as you could blink,

the constant petty arguments, the clashing of our wills, we filled it up in love's big cup, it then began to spill.

So here I stand my hat in hand my palms face skyward up, this love I feel so rough and tough it gets me fired up,

to go into the warzone and do battle for your heart, I play like I'm the man cause I intend to act the part.

We planted seeds 10 years ago now look, they're fully grown, mature enough to handle all the pressures of the throne,

a queen to me you're seemingly the apple of my eye, we've perservered alot without the risk of breaking stride.

To build an even stronger us we had to tear us down, examine everything until defections could be found,

so heavy is the head of which on top there lies a crown, my flow for you is infinite, just listen to the sound.

Remember when I spoke of how we're lying in the dark? We're chest to chest together BKA we're heart to heart,

forever plus 1 day we'll be this way intentions are, to love you til the day I die, so heavy hence the heart.
