Yours for the taking

When you first touched my hand

I silently hoped

That you would hold my heart forever

Wrap it up

And keep it safe

Somewhere

In a place

So far away from the agony

My soul has known before

But then in the dead of night

Old ghosts stole into my room

Under the cover of darkness

Filling my head with fears

Telling me it was not safe to believe

Yet when the monsters rose inside my chest

You answered everyone

With tenderness

So if I go quiet

For just a while

Tears are probably falling here

As my heart tears open

And I feel these barricades

Disappear

As a voice within

Whispers

Ever so quietly

Here is my heart

It is yours for the taking
