What a growing pain inside me
All this ache within entombed
It stills my heart, it’s hard to breathe
Surely this pain will lessen soon?
I did not know that hearts could bleed
Out salt and water through eyes and frowns
Unaware that love affects time’s speed
And makes the pace of life slow down.
Why, I can feel the tears inside
Surely soon they’ll come to life
And carry my feelings through.
Alas, instead the gnawing grows
And the hole inside me shows
How my heart truly belongs with you.
