Hearts

In the strangest situations, truth comes to light.

Among our deepest desires is to see it set free.
Moving the people around us, while leaving us unchanged.

Often we hold our hearts close, for only the intimate to see.
Lies – hidden away they must be,
drumming against the cage when all else is laid bare.

In the strangest situations, truth comes to light.

Among our deepest desire is to see it set free.
Moving the people around us, while leaving us unchanged.

Gone is our lust for drama
once we notice all our time has been spent in vain.
In our soul, we know, we must go home.
Near our bodies, we grab for those closest,
groping for a lonely friend when there is no one else.

Hardly do we notice that it is all for naught –
our purest lovers, the deepest companions,
may never hold our sacred hearts,
ever enclosed in our own elder hands.
