Recluse

Recluse

I took my mind off you

But my heart still beats for you

 

It broke my heart to be away

But I learned not to lead the love astray

 

Given a chance to go to you

I ran a race I couldn’t refuse

 

With open arms you held me close

Panting as the wind blew woe

 

Crying out my heart as I write this down

I watch you get off the lawn

 

We should have gotten our love redeemed

But you were already gone with the wind

 

It breaks my heart to end this now

But as I lay my pen down

 

I bring my heart into recluse

For my heart would remain fond of you
