PIERCED

Taking a walk back in time, to find a heart full of joy

Pierced by pain, longing to be set free

Avoiding life, endlessly searching for a way to beat again

 

Thinking that maybe somewhere in time there exists

A person to bring it back to life, even if for a moment

Hopeful that all is not lost, fear has not consumed

 

Realizing in my thoughts, life may be forever empty

The one meant for me has yet to be revealed

Unfortunate I have missed the mark

Longing for him, this arrow would pierce me again

 

Covered in hopelessness, though I can feel his touch

In my own imagination, loving me forever

Despair is now lost, and joy struggles on

My heart is pierced, but free again
