KEEPING YOU PURE

When your thoughts
of others fall from grace
picking up the tiny pieces like a rock
that should never break

I

See it written on your face
as i try to deactivate
& author the visions that call our fate

But

The truth is i’ll do the same
yet promise to protect you from lies
even if it draws tears from your eyes

While

Leaving your faith in us shaken
as you decipher me in coded silence
knowing what’s needed to be done then

I

Continue to make my way in
from the cold
restoring my place into your soul

Even

If they’re others you’re my olympic gold
& to this you already know
as i give you my heart even if its worn

Just

Like yours its been torn
but honestly speaking you keep me warm
while i keep you pure
