There is no stillness here
However I may want it... I can’t
Break the rhythm of this beating heart
Pumping blood through the corridors of this temple
A palace now shrouded in darkness
Hurting beyond mortal foresight
However I may want it... I can’t
Untie the cords around this beating heart
Armed only with the sharpness of my tongue
The sounds emanating within, brokenness barely
Forming the words, which comfort me
The single living monk of a monastery
Surrounded by GODs love but smothered
By the betrayer of my heart
This night of sorrows, lit by the candle of my tears
I am not afraid of mirrors or the future
But I am afraid of this beating heart
However I may want to stop it… I can’t
