it's all these little things
that keep happening
and then you close your heart
and you can't do
much of anything
the way you want to
with a closed heart

it's like a pin prick
a lightning stick
a sudden sting
and it goes right in
to the center,
the center of your heart
and it catches you
just right when you
you could not take one more thing

you hold on tight
and then you hold on tighter
and you
you seal off every opening

you try to send your pain
as far away
from you
as you think that you can get it

and there you are
cursing the world around you
you're a scared little shell of a human
with a moat around your heart

see all these little things
keep happening
and it's just a habit
you close your heart

and that is why
you are so scared today
'cos you know there's no way
you can do
what you need to
without your heart
