Guarded Heart

Within the crystal ball, I see the snow
I shake and shake it, but I cannot pass
Your guarded heart is where I cannot go

How to free the captive, I do not know
Spoken bullets bounce off the nose-pressed glass
Within the crystal ball, I see the snow

Locked away, where whipping winds cannot blow
Your love is a prize that cannot be won
Your guarded heart is where I cannot go

Dwelling where there is neither friend nor foe
In the clear cocoon, you are safe, but numb
Within the crystal ball, I see the snow

When stifled water has no room to flow
At the gate, you will not bid me to come
Oh guarded heart, why won’t you let me go?

Grief defeats, I release the lonesome glow
I know your throne is beyond my grasp
Within the crystal ball, I see the snow
Your guarded heart is where I cannot go

It looks like you chewed on the edges of the picture. Nice butcher job on my picture.

Ahh... to love and lose... how sad. Makes for great poetry though.
