How do I rip this heart out of my cold, hardened chest,
to let you see that you’re the best
of my life?

You want to run
and let it go
– our relationship –
because I can’t reciprocate
the emotions of
your love.

You walk away.
But Don’t walk away.
Can’t you see the love
inside of me?

My heart is stuck
like it’s in a cold, hardened chest
– like a diamond trapped in stone –
that I can’t
express.

You walk away.
But Don’t walk away.
Can’t you see the love
inside of me?
