UnHearted

Photograph each day so we can live forever.
Sit in the light to make the dark a little darker
And I dance to move only you,
and I fight to kiss and make up.
I scream for some silence.
I laugh to laugh for once.
So you notice that I'm gone.
And I breathe cause it's necessary,
and then I sigh when I see the moon.
I dream to make life seem less boring...
Until there was you.
And I feel in the absence of heart,
And I beg my eyes not to cry.
I'm a hopeless romantic who's trying to kick the habit.
But all hearts have darts.
Sweet red cherry blossom tree.
That lives in you and Me.
You marked your name,
but I can see,
that it's not on me.
So I've shamelessy gone and made myself come undone.
Heavy hangs my head,
when I'm unhearted.
I wear this Angel's crown to cover up my devil's frown.
And upon my broken chest lay a struggle.
Between lonliness and things that are out of place,
like my head in outer space.
And the carpet you walked on.
And that ceiling that cries
"Please don't walk away."
Sweet red cherry blossom tree.
That lives in you and me.
You marked your name.
But I can see
that it's not on me.
So I've shamelessly gone and made myself come undone.
Heavy hangs my head
when I'm unhearted.
Bellow it out with all the breath in my lungs.
Apologize for all that I've done.
You did a number on me
and a fantastic job.
In the scheme of things we never felt,
when your hearts been breached and your guards been let down.
You've rotten and spoiled me into the ground
and a good mess forgives all the rest we allow.

Have you thought of putting this to music? Most of what you write should be put to music. It's so beautiful and visual.
I always enjoy the pictures you put with what you write too.
