i feel pressure like an acid stone
curling wisps of fleshy smoke
as all my confidence degrades.
i do not know why certain folk
rob my self, make it choke
all i can say are words of aching breath.
they blink the light, my lungs go broke
my heart hates itself for all the love.
i do not know you, i can not love you
how could you betray me, my heart
how could you let the affection grow?
you persist! i want nothing more than to look beyond this one
let me move on
let me move along
i do not know him, i cannot love him
but Heart declares i should.
