house of hearts

You gave it away with a look,
That precious simple look like
white linen that's all yours;
It's telling me everything:

You're telling me I'm fine,
But no vision, no secret star
viewed in the velvet night,
spied from your house of hearts.

Dare say your wide eyed,
Dripping tepid smiles
At the thought of lyrics
Shaped in your form,
Words bended and built,
Crafted into songs
As strong as all I am...

A love as strong as the wind,
Wide eyed you look up to the sky
And wonder where it comes from,
Invisible, oblivious forces
Drawn in and out of the void.

All you are is another one,
Another heart stealer that
Comes and goes as with the
Change in season.
All that you are is a thought.
All that you are is that look.
That precious simple look like
white linen that's all yours;
And it's telling me everything.
