Let a beating heart rot away,
Dreams turned all grey

What silenced you putrid heart?

I thought I cleaned the wounds I thought I did my best,

I should have known when to give up.

This is too good to be, Put you in a cage of gold.

Let a beating heart rot away,

Dreams turned all grey, Sorrow started leaking from its cage.

A heart trapped in glitter Became bitter, Rage tore you out,

Left you in the wilderness,

Freedom stabbed you deep.

Destiny opened the gate of loneliness

Dry tears became company.

Leaving all the little memories right there,

Captured between the walls of your former gold cell,

Rest putrid heart rest.

Very intriguing. The things a heart yearns for become a trap to the heart itself. Nice writing.
