the court of hearts

your silence cut me  
a sharp blade  
drug across my emotions  

& i waited for you to say something  
but you kept still  

left to stew
i brood on my mistakes  
giving too much of myself  
while you remained stoic  

an inpenetrable fortress  
where i would be executed for trespass  
should i enter your court of hearts  

& like a fool i kept talking  
telling you all of my secrets  
you heard every last one  

sometimes i would get a nod of approval  
that would keep my feelings flowing  
then for months nothing  

& i feel you wait on me  
when i go silent  

you know i'll talk  
& keep your ego fed  
i've come to the end  
i have no more secrets to tell you  

& the ones I have left  
are mine to keep
