Upon a Deaf Heart
In darkness I sit; for warmth I await
My soul in tears; my feet wet from its pain
Reach for me I beg; lift me from this rivers weight
My spirit cries for release; my heart screams your name
The depth of my hurt not understood; a rift in time they create
Do not let me fall; in your hands should my soul remain
Allow not this realm to take me; save me from this drowning fate
Too many times I’ve been here, I can no longer journey this terrain
Heightened senses overwhelm; I must learn this heart to sedate
With your heart in my hands it would never feel these bitter rains
But in tears you let mine reside; where it molds and begins to stagnate
I scream for you to lift me but here I sit still; voiceless beneath unyielding chains
...when her heart cries to be lifted, hear it.
Visual: "She was drowning but nobody saw her struggle."
