A Darkened Heart

"A Darkened Heart" By: Lilly Van Sickle

 

Pull me down and watch me plunder,

 

Because I was tamed by love and thunder.

 

Give me your wing to hide under,

 

Because I am sacred, and I am stubborn.

 

Grace is hiding in the cupboard,

 

And I am calling to you brother.

 

"Come and see what I've uncovered!"
 

 

Find me in the dark,

 

Aid me back, I’ll praise then depart.

 

Hide me with your dead!

 

I've a live heart, but dyeing flesh.

 

I used to behave, but that was in earlier days.

 

I used to betray this evil I’ll one-day escape.

See this child scream and shutter!

 

Tell me this world does not suffer!  

 

It’s then we stare at one another,

 

Meanwhile hiding our guns and shovels.

 

Yes, I will die beneath theses covers,

 

While I try to call out to the others,

 

"Come and see what I've uncovered!"

 

 

 

Come see what I have let take place!

 

This heart is shrouding lust and shame!

 

Though, I’m not one to misbehave,

 

at least not in the light of day.

 

For years I let it weld these chains,

 

But now a darkened heart filters my veins

 

So, watch as I begin to fade

 

Don't run, but promise me & say

 

"I still love you all the same!"

 

 

Catch me in the dark!

 

Take me back, untill I fray with the stars.

 

Hide me with your dead!

 

I've a live heart, but dyeing flesh.

 

I used to behave, but that was in earlier days.

 

I used to betray this evil I’ll take to the grave.
