You’ve clogged up my heart and put a road block between my head and my senses

 

I feel uncertain of anything and dazed to the point of swaying at the slightest touch

 

My entire world is distorted through the lens of your cloudy eyes

And I ache to grab hold of some firm thing to keep from falling apart

 

Dear heaven, how you wound, with clumsy words and bashful smiles

 

I pray that you will have some mercy on my blemished, battered soul

 

You’re like a gleaming pearl, tucked beneath a rose

Beauty upon beauty is all the make of you

 

A more-so cautious one would search you for your thorns

 

But I am one content to bleed within your arms

 

Dear heaven, how you salve, with poisons sweet and sure

 

You are a rare disease for which I’ll take no cure
