THIS, MY HEART ON A SILVER PLATTER

September 28, 2007
By Jennifer Thompson, Malvern, AR

until i collapse on the floor
in writhing pain and bloodshed
until i can't even open a door
because my legs are broken and bleeding
until i am unmercifully murdered
until i am deaf, blind, and mute
until you see my blood curdle
the only one i will look for is you
i will love you forever
and search all my life
no change in endeavor
it's for you that i strive
so don't run away
with that look on your face
that makes me not stay
that turns my heart into lace
that makes me feel happy
for once in my life
that makes it all less crappy
that makes me put down the knife
stay with me this time
i'll always be true
until i'm dead and buried
i'll be searching for you
