I only had a heart

Lately I’ve been counting
mostly days,
sometimes words
I wonder how long it will take
for the cold to leave
and how many words it will take
to turn ramblings into books
Sometimes I recount my words
and notice a pattern
that love used to be sunny
now it’s a pile of ice and dirt
And how the sun used to be cheap
available all year long
now it’s a memory
I yet have to overcome

I was once like the sun
shining away radiating love
expecting a smile
upon the face of my earth
My rays burned my heart

and I only had a heart.
