The Box

Heart locked in a steel box
Pad locked and hang tightly
Protected from the violence
In a world of love
The lies the torment the abuse
All kept at arms length
Until the beating heart is cold
Still and lifeless in a boned cage
Metal melted away from loneliness
For the world to see the truth
The longing the pain
That all it ever wanted
Was a box for two
And be complete…
