Warm Embrace


Bring me pieces of what
Are your broken heart
And watch me fall in love
With every piece
For definitions are often revised,
I’ll redefine your definition of love

I see the hurt you hide
Abaft your beautiful smile;
For smiles with a certain gaiety
Spring from a heart that knows misery
I know because I do the same,
My smiles are the ashes of charred love

So pour yourself into me
That I might be the vial
In which you lose yourself
For my heart is built with
The foundations of understanding
And in my soul is a warm embrace.
