My Silver Heart

My silver heart, what can it be? 
Everything pure and divinity? 
Not quite, actually far from 
As it twists around my restless 
thumb.  

It stands for the heart I aim to 
have 
One of unconditional, powerful 
love 
Not that with broken shards. 

One that beats for life 
And overcomes 
No imploding under pressure. 

It stands for the metal I have 
had 
Coating my heart so I can 
stumble through. 
It gently lies around my neck 
Protecting me from a malicious 
wreck.  

Words, they have pummeled 
me, 
"Gay...Fag...Queer" ----- Please 
get out of here! 
My silver heart please help 
Give me the strength and help 
me shed a tear. 

Tears of self-hate and loathing 
But tears that pull me through. 
Please silver heart, I'm begging 
you. 
Please help me pull through.
