My shameful heart
Is tugged two ways
It beats for nights
It pumps for days
The love I feel
It pulls me in
But lust is such a tempting sin
You drag me through
He pulls me up
I taste a drop
From vain’s chipped cup
I start to crawl
Feel my body shake
What a dream
A fantasy
To wake
I open my eyes
Cover my heart
Wonder forever
How did this start?
Will you question?
Will you see?
Lose all trust
You gave to me?
Your love
Your love
It pulls me in
But my dear,
Lust is such
A tempting sin
