Fragile Heart Read Count : 20

Take away my rights

Take away my deeds

Take away the words I spoke

When you were in need


Take the face I once knew

And cast it aside

I no longer recognize

The man down deep inside


Terrorize my heart

Beat me to a pulp

Tell me that it’s all my fault

For drinking from the cup


Whip me for transgressions

Barely seen or felt

Use the paddle at your side

Maybe use your belt


Burn me with your hatred

Upon this funeral pyre

Show my little heart inside

The pain that you desire


Ignore the cries I level now

Here upon your heart

Know that I have given all

Each and every part


Here I proclaim my innocence

Bare my heart to you

Never have I meant you ill 

Or tried to break your heart


I see the rage upon your brow

The anger in your eyes

Do not show me anymore

My insides I despise


The words you speak are etched upon

This fragile heart of mine

Like a brand upon the flesh

They have become mine 


Show mercy for this heart of mine

How much more can I take

The truth I wish to show you

Begs me have you wait


No more violence

In our hearts and minds

Only love for mankind

Brings light to the dark
