within my shuttered heart

if then I told you that I loved you would you still believe me?

If

I told you that I loved you

Though I don’t know where to start it

If

I said I’d never leave you

That even time could never part us

If

I opened up the shutters

Cleared the dust from every corner

If

I let you see the things

I try so desperately to quarter

If

Inside my perfect heart

A few repairs were still required

If

You knew this would you stay?

Or would you oh so quickly tire?

If

I trust you with these secrets

Let you lock away the key

If

Then I told you that I loved you

Would you still believe me?

The End
