ode to a hidden heart

beautiful and charming

you are a lovely thief

stealing passion’s fire

in search of some relief

from fragile self-esteem

and untold forms of grief

 

emptiness surrounds you

despite the hearts you win

pleasure passes quickly

and you’re alone again

facing those same demons

residing from within

 

could I but take away

your painful memories

undo the vicious words

spewed at your tearful pleas

that tore into your spirit

and sent you to your knees

 

alas, I have no power

to undo all your pain

neither friend nor lover

has strength to stop that rain

whose waters now are floods

and cause your heart to wane

 

have you not yet realized

the strength to ebb this tide

comes from faith in your own heart

to push the floods aside?

if only you could love again

the waters would subside

 

beautiful and charming

you are a lonely thief

whose only sin is blindness

in search of some relief

awake and share your heart

to end your days of grief
