March 13, 2010 - Nails




Nails

You thought you drove a nail into my heart
When you said goodbye
Left me here to stand alone
Thinking I would cry

Your nail it only pricked a bit
As it narrowly missed its mark
Because the point that it was aiming for
Did not contain my heart

Walk away and take your tools
Your hammer and your nail
And the next time that you aim
You'll only hurt yourself

You see the heart that you were seeking
To drive your nail into
Does not belong to me
As I gave it to you
