My heart is molten gold.

poured into a shape,

it beats.

~

But then,

someone takes it,

claiming it for

itself.

~

It wore my heart

on it's sleeve

like a mere

piece of prettyness

instead of my heart.

~

Then it cut a slit

in my heart

with its foul tongue.

It took the most pure

and beautiful bits on my heart

and sold them to the rest

of the world.

~

But still my heart beats

of its own accord,

bound not

to beat to someone elses whim.

They cannot change

nor destroy

the beat,

yet they can, and they've tried,

to dim the rhythm

beating in my heart of

molten gold
