Rupture of the deep, my heart feels locked-in

Submerged in an ocean of no escape; no respite

From the strange feeling I’m trapped within

Feels like I’m about to be consumed; despite

Knowing that many scars had worn it thin

From years of burden; beholden like a cursed rite



I seemed to have lost it and keep on seeking

As if it lay hidden in some abyss somewhere

Leaving only some sort of erratic feel and pining

Feelings that I don’t comprehend, but are there

Confusing me at times; and at others whining

Yearning for composure and goodness to compare



As elusive as can be, it’s hard to withhold

Since the rupture can venomously be infectious

And cause a corruption of mind, body and soul

Leading to an insurrection so damningly contagious

 Alas, finding my stranded heart and nursing it whole

The only option that brink on the entirely obvious



For my heart is not mine to definitively possess

It has been trusted upon me as an instrument

Of melange and miscellany to receive and redress

To ingest each and every single moment

And to share my feel, desires and to address

All that’s loathsome, virtuous, noble and decent



It’s the entity that embodies faith and hope

Compassion, altruism, sacrifice, love and piety

With an endless depth of containment, it’ll cope

Differentiate between righteousness and impropriety

Absorbing all the essence in, as wide a scope

Where my conscience resides in utter grandiosity
