Am I just your current obsession?
What happens when it wears off?
When my novelty fades?
When you see the truth of me?
Where will we be when the light
shines on the dark places
and all is revealed?
Will I be discarded like the rubbish I am?
Or will you pick me up, dust me off and breathe new life into my brokenness?
Would I be worth it?
At what point will my tears
become a burden?
Or my lips and hands and body
no longer satisfy?
Will those fiery looks of passion become
glances of regret?
And then what?
Will I be left holding my feeble heart
in trembling hands?
I want to walk back in time,
Build a thicker wall about my heart
so that when the day comes,
and it surely will,
I’ll be prepared.
Less scarred, less hurt,
an island unto myself.
