Watchman Of The Six Kingdoms by MiracleQuist: 10:58am On Dec 25, 2018
I
I passed by your heart
tonight
and I stole a peek within its corridors,
Loneliness has taken up residence
Whilst sipping a cup of tears
Stored upon the shelf of your memories.

II
Tonight, I passed once more
by your heart,
It's doors ajar now guarded
By pain.
I couldn't steal any more peeks.

III
You've known pain
And I've seen your eyes bury within them
- a regret, a betrayal
But in all I see myself too
- a reminder of what I once felt.

IV
Help me fight
Those battles within your heart
- of hurt, hate and rage.
Help me unfold the mysteries
that cloud your soul
Unwrap yourself like an Onion.
Let them fall
- the tears.

V.
You speak like a silent waterfall
- mysteries surround your words
I find meaning in your tears. I think it's time
Help me steal a peek once more.
I promise
I'll leave your broken pieces the way they are
But never where they are.

VI.
Tonight,
I passed by your heart and I smiled.
Your lights are on
Old tenants gone.
