Until the Day

Who feels the pounding of their heart
And fire flowing through their veins
When love appears before their eyes
And all their vision stains?

If any makes a claim against
Reactions such as these, they lie
All people subject to their hearts
On nothing else rely

And when the feeling grows too strong
To hold within that swollen chest
The mouth will open into song
For which I’m owed redress

The stagnant words give me offense
A lack of effort coarse as sand
Or flourish all too grand a phrase
I cannot understand

It’s words that fail to capture me
My heart is closed, a heavy door
It shall remain until the day
That someone offers more
