Love Is Like a Pair of Boots

 

I crawl on my knees for you,
I beg you and I plead.
I fillet my heart for you
and lay it at your feet.

You are a mountain
that I cannot move.
Do you have a heart of stone
or has it been removed?

How do you bury your emotion?
I can’t understand that notion.
How can love be this way?
Please teach me to walk away.

Love is like a pair of boots,
you break them in and wear them often.
When you tire of them you throw them out
or store them in the closet.

For a time you wore them both on
any given day.
When one pair began to pinch
you tossed them in the corner
and then you walked away.

It matters not how you use them.
or how their souls fare.
You’ve always got that other pair,
that you are free to wear.
