DARK HEART


DARK HEART

S.JENSEN (C)2013

FOUND SO REWRITTEN (C) 2019

INTO THE TIMES OF

HISTORY WHERE

I LOVE THE

WRONG ONES

AND PAY THE PRICE

FOR IT

ALWAYS PAY THE PRICE

I WAS WALKING

THE OTHER DAY

AND FOUND A SILVER RING

OF FLOWERS

IT HAD BEEN CRUSHED

BY A CAR

ON THE ROAD

YET STILL GOOD

IT WAS A LUCKY FIND

SO I BENT IT BACK INTO

SHAPE

KINDA HOW I FEEL

AND PUT IT ON MY FINGER

THIS IS THE TOUCH

OF MY TYPE OF FATE

LOST IN MY FANTASIES

AND MY DREAMS

OF LONG AGO

YET STILL THE SAME

ROSE FLOWER

STILL AS LOST AS EVER

THE SIMPLE MEASURES

OF THIS POINT

THE ABILITY TO WRITE

AT THE DROP OF A HAT

YET NOTHING SOMETIMES

COMES TO MIND

AS THE SUN IS SHINING

AND THE ROSE

FEELS SO BROKEN

YET SO PEACEFULLY SET

TO STILL BE GOOD

JUST NEED

A LITTLE BENDING

BACK INTO PLACE

TO FIND A WAY

TO TURN THIS AROUND

I TRY HARD

NOT TO LET THE LOWS

TAKE OVER

OR THE ANGER STAY LONG

I WORK THROUGH IT

BETTER THAN

I USED TO

STILL ON THAT

EDGE BETWEEN SHADOWS

AND LIGHT

WHERE I FUEL FIRES

AND HAVE TO COOL THEM DOWN

OH MY MIND

CAN SO IN AN INSTANT

GO RIGHT BACK

YET I FIGHT IT HARD

CUS I AM STILL

SITTING HERE

ALONE

IN THE SHADOWS

TO THE MYSTERIES

OF WHAT I KNOW

AND WHAT I DON’T

I AM NOT PERFECT

NOR CLAIM TO BE

OH TO WHERE I CAN BE

AND WHERE I AM NOT

AND FACT

I AM HERE

THE MEMORIES

OF IT ALL

SEEM SO DISTANT NOW

AS I AM STILL

TRYING TO FIGURE

OUT THIS DARK HEART

DRIFTING IN AND OUT

OF THE MISSED

POSSIBILITIES

AND THE TRUTHS

AND NOT ABLE

TO DO MUCH ABOUT

ANY OF IT

THERE ARE NO

ANSWERS TO GIVE

BUT I WAIT

ITS ALL I CAN DO

IS WAIT

FOR SOMEONE

THAT WILL NEVER

COME

AND ITS ALWAYS

ON MY MIND

THE MOMENT

THAT DREAM

THE CAR

THE CRAVING

LONGING

THE MOMENT WHEN

LIFE CHANGED

WITH JUST A FEW WORDS

AND THE DANCE

AND THE LEAP

AND THE FACTS

WE ARE NEVER GONNA

BE

JUST DRIVES ME

UP THE WALL

AS YOU GO

THEN BACK AROUND

ALL I HAVE FOUGHT

STILL HAS PURPOSE

AS LONG

AS I CAN STILL

KNOW

I HAVENT BEEN

THE ONLY ONE

LEFT WANTING

LEFT CRAVING

LEFT OUT HERE

IN THIS DAMN OPEN

STATE OF BEING

WHAT WE DO

THAT WAS SO BAD

REALLY

TRULY

AND YET

OH SO DANGEROUS

TO FEEL

THE POINTS OF THE STAR

I WOULD

REACH FOR

THAT SPOT

AGAIN AND AGAIN

THE KNOWING OF IT

AND WHERE

IT LEAVES ME NOW

SITTING HERE

IN THE MIDST

OF MORE CHANGES

OH THIS DARK HEART

LEFT BEHIND

STILL WANTS

THE ONE

THAT WILL NEVER

COME.
