They say you took away my heart;
I say you’ve taken my feet,
Piece by piece the bottom part,
The skin that touch the ground –
I can no longer land;
I can only hover.
Flesh too raw
Funny how I hover and shift
I can no longer put weight
In a crowded room
I cannot stand
I cannot reach a soul
Was it just my feet you took, my love?
Alas, you took my hands!
I cannot reach, I can only grope.
I cannot touch, I can only burn.
I walk and all that’s read are marks,
No hope for my return.
They say you took away my heart.
Why have I none left
to give out?
