Heart Of Stone


Heart Of Stone

Emotion flowing down
wearing thin
on my hardened rock
of heart

It was once growing
crystal bright
arrested in motion
frozen beautiful
and cold

Now
love burning
lava river
blazing waking
moving
in my chest
of stone

I move
I beat
slivers of slate
cracks
fissures
my heart of flesh
crumbles its mountain cover

Dancing on stone
to the beat of my blood
I love again
