Lesson

Let me sing it back to you
the serenade
how it travels far and wide in the
strange lands till you hear
it’s an echo of your lonely heart

Let me sing it back to you
the soothing lullaby
which will calm your
devil and soothe your fears and
puts a balm on your welt
yellow raising skin
tattoed with blisters

Let me sing it back to you
the stories
the folklore
of unrequited love
how it fails to impress a heart
full of longing and desire

Let me sing back to you
my love
so that you can
find those words of wisdom
before slashing your heart open and
feeding to the vultures

Let me sing back to you my love
So you don’t let your poor heart
go through the pain
I once suffered.
