“Heart on Paper”
written on 2.11.12

i put my heart on paper
wear it on my sleeve
share it with you
for all the world to see

isn’t it ironic
how strangers can get to know me
know my deepest secrets and feelings
better than those i see every day

the older i get
the more i yearn for intimacy
not superficial conversations
but the ones that keep your mind up all night

i spend a lot of time wondering
why people waste their breath on small talk
instead of bearing their soul

my mom always warned me to take it slow
but life is short
so i seek what’s beneath
true beauty is always underneath
i want to see your soul
