A HEARTS DESIRE

SUFFER NOT MY LOVE
FOR REASONS WHY
THIS FEAR OF LOVE
JUST WON'T SUBSIDE,
LIKE RESTLESS WAVES,
AND OCEANS ROAR.
FOR WANT OF LOVE-
I CLOSED THE DOOR,
BLOCKED OUT THE SUN
AND CURSED THE MOON.
TOO LIVE IN FEAR
OF MORTAL WOUNDS,
THOUGHTS CONCEIVED
SO DEEP WITHIN.
REASON CANNOT ERASE
WHAT IS HELD INSIDE
A HEART OF FEAR
CANNOT UNDERSTAND
THE REASONS WHY.
ONLY LOVE CAN FILL
THIS HEARTS DESIRE
