Save My Heart - Poem by Kenneth Davis

Save My Heart by Kenny Davis

My Lord, my father
Please save my heart
From the cruelties of this world
And its people from tearing it apart

My heart bitter and frozen
From the mere absence of warm blood
This substance remains stained
Sin has made it filthier than mud

Without your blood of life
Lord, why haven’t I fainted?
This world has made my heart cold
My dirty soul remains tainted

My heart lies in utter hatred
Its love for this world lies dormant
Due to the world’s twisted cruelty
Its torture and endless torment

The death of my heart
Due to wearing it on my sleeve
Lord, save my soul from the agony
Of being utterly bereaved

What could have possibly happened
To turn my warm heart to stone
To make it feel that it better off
Embracing its own

To have an insatiable urge to live alone
Loving the warmth of the icicles stretched along my bones
Shielding from the world, the heart that it’s never known
When the world banished it to the abyss that it proudly calls home

You see, my lord
My heart needs your help
For without you it is lost
Without you, there is no one else
