If Only I Could Answer To My Heart

If only I could answer
To my heart
Tell it to shut up
That I don’t need anyone
That I’m fine
That I’m just fine
That I’m doing great
By my lonely self
My whole, entire
Complete, lonely self
That company, togetherness
Overfilled sharing
Are oblivious
Of my personal space
That in emptiness
In emptiness I’m free!
I am free to move
To run, run, run
To mourn
To yell
To freaking yell!
To ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha to laugh!
To walk
To walk alone
To be alone
In infinite space
Where emptiness
Is a time dilator
And loneliness
Loneliness is by far
More valuable than air!

If only I could tell it
To take it like a man
Not like a fallen man
Who has owned the world
And then lost it
To weakness
To a woman
No, not like that man
Take it
Take it like a man
A man, man
That has led the world
And has loved the world
And has loved a woman
A man that loved
That loved with crazy love
Yet never stopped
To pause
To put the world on hold
For company, for togetherness
For overfilled sharing
So oblivious
To his personal space
Instead, in the vastness
Of empty space
Away from weakness
He became free
He walked free
He walked alone
Free and alone
He walked, walked
Walked Free
Free, free, free!
Away from weakness
He walked free
Free, free, free!
O hear me
Stubborn heart
Completely free!
