"Queen of Hearts"

Updated on June 19, 2013
The worst part is knowing,
what would have been,
and this heart will ache,
till the end.
Perhaps, I too am cursed,
like so many of my friends,
undeserving and burdened,
with a heart that shall transcend,
above any other love we've ever felt,
but to us the Queen of Hearts is never dealt.

She plays us for fools,
plays the game so well.
Her every move leaves us in Heaven,
or throws us deep into Hell.
I am no stranger to that fiery pit,
its like a playground for me to dwell.

Call me Alice in wonderland.
Call me what you will.
But I am no Queen of Hearts,
and she holds my head still,
waiting with sword in hand,
she brings me to my knees.
I dont understand,
I cant even breathe.

As I close my eyes,
I know my heart will no longer ache.
There's no use in fighting,
I've taken all I can take.
If I were a witch,
she'd burn me at the stake,
but its my heart she wants,
so fragile and easy to break.
But this is what she doesnt see,
my heart doesnt belong to me.
as mad as a hatter he is,
my heart will always be his.

      Very beautiful and profound!

      Somewhere, far down, there was an itch in his heart, but he made it a point not to scratch it. He was afraid of what might come leaking out.

      The only person that can truly stand in you way is you. Never lose you head to the Queen of Hearts.
