Let your heart speak my mind (poem)

Let your heart speak my mind (poem)

I plead for passion
you show compassion
rock of a hug
crushing my heart

broken hearts fleeing
the mire outgrow
the bounds and flop
manure to the swamp

homes, dark corners
of our rooms, are
the actual battlefield
war is for the brave

where mud houses
are mere dreams
love grows homeless
wild and brief

so let your heart speak
my mind, broken fences
mend our hearts and
bury alive all our sins
