For What Its Worth

My heart is yours
For what its worth
It beautiful and cruel 
and it misleads many with lovers eyes 
to follow what they believe are stars in the night
Like fairys dancing in the dark
It will lure you in with shining lights
And goad you into a taste
Of wine posined with a bit of lust
Fully believing that you are in love 
It will take you by the hand
And drag you to the rocky cliffs
Convince you you'll want to take a swim 
Breathing in the salty taste 
You wont realize that as time passes
Your only wasting away 
It will tell you sweet lies
They mean nothing of the truth
Though it may perhaps care
Its only infatuated with you 
It will tell you that you have wings
And push you to fly to the heavens
But when you spread your arms to soar
You'll realize that is was just a fake image
It will hold you gently
Like an andaconda in a dream
Feasting like a carnivor 
Silencing your scream 
You'll find that you are trapped
With no way to be released
Until it wakes from its dream 
- Until it wakes from its dream
If you want it you can have it
Though it will only be on lend
My heart is yours 
For whats its worth 
Remember I warned you my friend

    WOW Jay!!! - I feel as though I just awoke from a heavenly & haunting dream where I could taste the romantic & dangerous opium on my Oracles breath - such a primordial voice you have - a danger that cannot be denied - exquisite language, serious poetry - without dispute, a Masterpiece - J.A.B. %
