Vigilant Heart

Hearts unopened
Cannot be broken
Walls, walls, walls…
You keep me safe.

I rule my heart.
My will imparts
That in this fortress
I will remain.

Never again
Will I die within.
While my body
Lives in vain.

On this island
I know who I am.
I am a rock.
I cannot break.

Do not mention love
Please, speak not of
Such fantasies,
For fire does burn.

No one is immune.
And someday soon
My vigilant heart
Will cease to yearn.
