This Heart

Written by: regina branham

To think 
a thought 
would generate 
another, which 
in turn 
would 
cause my heart

to bleed

to shame 
to shame

to blame 
to blame

this heart 
which knows 
not

how to heal 
itself

but slows 
its pain 
to drip one 
drop 
at a time

to drain 
to drain

the strain 
the strain

of each 
lesson 
of life
