Holding Together a Fragile Heart

Updated on December 16, 2017

The aftermath

The innocent sky dances to the melody of the gentle thunder

The storms of Lebanon sweeps sorrow upon my shoulder

The protective element of my heart has now been shattered

Leaving my skinny arteries and veins unsheltered

The frozen membrane of my lungs now has melted

My skin like an Egyptian manuscript,

Unveiled the secrecy it once conscripted

Inscribed on it the crazy condition of the heart

The element down within me are falling apart

There is controversy in my head that I can no longer comprehend

Riot in my very bones that i could no more amend

I am drowning deep down in the depth of my fears

I have no strength left for me to mop my own tears

I stand in the pit of loneliness with no recognition from my peers

The pages of my heart unfold the hidden stories untold

The blanket of my past i pull out to fold

Looking so pale and brown I can no longer deny; I’m weak

The defense I once had within fallen, there is a leakage in me

I have been stuck in the flood of my blood, i can't breathe

May the flying creatures carry me to Miami

For in ma auricles there is a tsunami

I hold in my hand a needle of faith

To patch up the holes that remains

For the chaos within me drives me insane
