If

by Ignoris   Jul 15, 2008


If this heart stopped beating,
Would anyone care?
Would it be alright and finally fair?

If this heart stopped beating,
Would you pay the price?
Of all the guilt held for the end of a life?

If this heart stopped beating,
Would it finally be
A distant thought, a memory?

If this heart stopped beating
Would the world stop too?
Would everything change to gray and blue?

If this heart stopped beating
Would it find relief?
From all the past, find a sense of peace?

If this heart stopped beating
Would it still be alone?
Or dance with Angels of the worlds unknown?

If this heart stopped beating
What would you do?
Would your heart be still and stop beating too?
