Heart of Thorns

Heart of Thorns

Everything that grows
Learns to protect itself
Eventually it shows
No hiding on the shelf

I am no different
The damages of my past
Make it hard for me to vent
And made my defenses vast

Reaching for my heart
Is like grabbing a blade
One slip you’ll be cut
And from you I shall fade

My heart is covered in thorns
Only a gentle steady hand
Has a chance to avoid the toxin
And the only way you’ll understand

So if you want me be prepared
For I am not easy to hold
I’ll hurt you before you have a chance
So don’t be easy to fold

My heart contains treasures
You’ll never be lonely again
Once my heart is yours
I’ll be there till the end.
