Runaway Heart - Poem by Danny Speicher

I once had a girl, and once she had me
And though her charms were charms in which I'd dreamed
Her infatuation wasn't all it seemed
My happily captured heart, she set free

Ever since I've chased this runaway heart
Hunting answers to patch it's gushing sieve
Seeking out life in life, that I might live
Alone on this earth; from her, far apart

Though I'm nearer this solitary strength
I am still longing for life lived before
My past vices, made her show me the door
Love is a game played, often at arm's length

Perhaps someday, another, I'll draw near
To bring peace to this life of hurt and fear
