O Heart, you were made to pump blood
But now, you control my choices
I open you to the world
But you turn my sentences into clauses

I sashed you with smiles
though I'm sunk to the floor
I'm rolling with the tides
While longing to soon reach for the shores

The pain resonates within
Fed with thorns masked by roses
The expected end is where it begins
At the tunnel, all I see are cages

Oh, heart, I plead for will
Though all at hand could spill.
