and if i make any promise at all, it will be to stop with all the lies that lurk around my lips – those filthy thoughts that catch on every word i’m too scared to say.
so heart, what is it that you want?
i’ll give that to you. whatever it may be, whatever makes your beating bravest. no matter how blind or broke or ignorant i am. if it’s on the other side of fear, i’ll trek through. no matter how insane, ridiculous, utterly impossible it seems,
i’ll give it all to you.
because i’m done with lying to my heart.
