Despite the apprehension
To give you my whole heart,
Wholeheartedly I must mention
You’ve upset the apple cart.
You’ve shaken my stirred
And most rotten beliefs,
You shook this twisted tree
To where you fell, so sweetly, at my feet.
And gleamed at me - brightly;
Like Snow White’s forbidden fruit.
The cold core of me held tightly
And tugged from it‘s ripened root.
Futile and unfathomable
Was the famine within my chest.
I wore heartbreak for a year
Like a cold gold-plated crest.
And now I jest,
And ingest the fact,
That now I couldn’t ask for more.
Replenishing my heart,
Without the hunger I felt before.
