21 June 2015


I grew wings when I wanted to fly
gills when I wanted to swim
when there was no light
I acquired echo location
when I wanted a heart
I ended up empty

I could make rain in the desert
create warmth in the north pole
breathe under the water
fly to the top of mountains
but make a heartbeat
I ended up empty

though I had many gifts
I found that I was lonely
I know it was love I sought
but a pipe dream only
can't love without a heart
I ended up empty
