The new song

Theres a song in your heart
A poem that has brought you to your knees
You crush the grapefruit
of words between your tongue
The sweet yet sour taste of truth
embedded with sweet lies
That were delicious
Once upon a time
And you tell yourself
This narrative,
My narrative
makes sense
Beneath the sting
Of old pain
Wounds that bleed
With welts and scars around them
A map of pain
A globe of history
And you prepare
new words
new songs
a new poem in your heart
To float into tomorrow
Countering the sting
Of yesterday
