what lies?

by damommza & sunovawot

what lies beneath this frozen heart
I feel its beat no more
the years have used up all it’s life
what was this marriage for?

I’ve walled it up and nailed it shut
and changed it’s whole design
so if there is but one more chance
dear, please give me a sign

some reason i should not depart,
and kiss this farce goodbye
a sign that there is more to us
than meets my jaundiced eye

I had a dream when we were young
of how the future goes
so tell me how did we get here
such bitter, bloody, foes

but I would take each misstep back
no matter what it cost
give everything but you away
to have back what we lost

    I just love this. I really think it’s our best yet!

    • As I’ve said before, I have no ability to judge the quality of my poetry, and that extends to poetry I’m involved in writing. The only thing I can do is judge whether I like it or not. And on that basis, I like it! 🙂
