Heart Debt

You said you’d never leave me
But that’s what they all say
And in the end they leave
Leave me with heart debt

I have given my entire heart
To my past loves
So now my hearts negative
It a black burn mark in my chest

I overdraw a piece of heart
To give it to my darling
It’s all I have to give
They mindlessly take it

I keep slicing at my loaned heart
Falling deeper
And deeper
Into love debt

In the end my love leaves
But I always find a new love
To overdraw my heart to
So I take another slice

I frantically drain my account
To give more heart
If I don’t my love will leave
But they always leave anyways

I have nothing left
So I beg the bank for more
To give to my new darling
To bask in loves warmth

Borrowed warmth
Given to fickle people
Who slip away
Like a coin in a slot machine

My baby’s eyes gleam
“Win the big prize”
Keep draining your account
The jackpot is just out of reach

But I’ve run out of credit
All my accounts are maxed
My tabs are overflowing
And my loves run dry

My love is all depleted
So my baby has abandon me
Taking with them
The heart and love I loaned

Anxiety spikes
They’re coming to collect
From my bankrupt account
My heart debt
