An Enlarged Heart
You said you’d be alright
As the cracks begin to show in the night
Said you’d gone to your next friend
As the truth begins to show on your face
It’s not alright to have an enlarged heart
When you don’t get close enough to get close enough to get a real response
It’s not intact when you’re not in love
You keep in covered up in a safe place too long
You said you’d reached the end
Of the rope that separates the bits
And I’m supposed to make new plans
As the grass begins to grow around my feet
You said you’d make it swift
As the blows begin to rain down around my neck
And now there’s not a snowball’s chance
I will ever even make a dent
