I know your fear, my dear.
Of being ‘lone within this world,
When everything’s of black and drear,
And there your heart a-swirled,
Is in struggles of despair.
A heart given is found,
To want none other, once it’s found,
A place inside….a flowing ground…
Of endless enchantments which pound,
Within veins of crimson blood.
Yes, I know you bleed my dear,
With scarlet agonies of loss,
For hearts are resting places near,
All that is the soul and boss,
Of loves’ enriching clarities.
You may be thus lost right now,
And feel you’re all alone in pain.
As no one could ever know how,
It feels to bear hearts’ broken stain,
On your souls’ experienced truth.
But just remember that you can’t,
Change those who hate to make them.
You deserve more than to chant,
And live over your love to them,
Who can’t be made to understand.
So, no matter what happens,
Don’t waste your heart on one,
Without the needed comprehends,
To see your love’s the real one,
And not just some battle to be won.
You shouldn’t settle for second place,
In any battles waged with cost,
If true-love he’d risk all to race…,
To your side whatever’s lost.
So please, my dear, don’t settle there,
And let your heart wither to dust.
