lacrimosa

i’ll cut out my heart when it’s of no use
for you i’ll cut out my heart
so it can be some use for you
lead me to the seas of your desires
and lay into me the saltiness of your years
that have shadowed the best of your passions
i’ll cut out my heart when it’s of no use
for you i’ll cut out my heart
so it can be some use for you
where you drink the wine of my years
and recoil at the staining of your sands
but wonder of the rain
where does it come from?
and when will it end?
i’ll cut out my heart when it’s of no use to me
so it will serve some use for you
and swim into the ocean
swell the tides until all the blue merges
and pull heaven down
onto the beaches of your soul

written while listening to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s piece, “Requiem Mass in D Minor, K. 626: III. Lacrimosa”
