If I Had A Heart


Bring back a day,
From the past,
Lose myself in the bliss,
Taste the memories, on my lips,
Toy with the recollection,
Of anecdotes and legends,
Of warriors and shield-maidens,

Nostalgia for your touch,
Fill my sleep,
If I had a heart, I would feel the pain,
A thousand deaths would greet my fate,
Bitter against the grain,
And slaughtered in shallow graves,
Suspended by wire threads
That hold my limbs,
And feather spikes,
That shawl my dearth,

My voice a lost language,
Speaks only to me,
If I had a tongue, I would lick your wounds clean,
In forgotten reap, lesions contort my skin,
Feast like poison through my bloodstream,
Diffusing over the mountaintops,
Clearing the snow peaks,
Vanished within the clouds,
A tribe of souls walking these very steps,
Vanquishing in stolen breaths.
