Heart of Stone – Poem #57

Heart of Stone – Poem #57

October 7, 2019 0 By GlennThomas

I don’t give thanks enough

As if I need a reason to love

Chase demons I named lust

A cheesy smile and I wish them luck

But I don’t need a reason to fuck

 

I don’t say the things I should do

And even if I did, I’d probably lose

Because I won’t do, what I could for you

But I’d keep a close eye or two

And defend the trust, I’m not due

 

I don’t admit I’m wrong

And zone out with a stereo on

I can only be reached through song

Weight on these shoulders made me strong

Bricks may crumble, but stones roll on

 

I don’t say this enough

But when you’re gone, it’s tough

You’re the demon I labelled lust

You gave me a reason to love

But this heart of stone’s too cold to touch
