Against Her Heart

It didn’t take long to see

Not after talking to her

After holding her

Wiping her tears away

Brushing my hand through her hair

Under a blanket of stars

Next to the ocean of her soul

Everyone has told her what she should be

He told her what she couldn’t be

She’s heard all the lines before

So I told her the truth

In my hand she put hers

That’s where it stays

Against her heart
