You've been digging your nails
into my vital organs
since the day I set my eyes on you,
you hammered them in tight
in the cool breeze of the night
as my extension grew.
You managed to get to my foundations
and although I was happy
to let you get in deep,
I'm left with a tear
which will always be there
and I fear that this void will keep.
The damage has already been done
and it's too late to wish
that I left my heart's structure alone,
but I won't trust fools
to play with my tools
unless their longevity is known.
