i was so young

and yet i already thought

i could never fall in love again

love rather than pouring my heart

with life’s force

had just pressed it so hard

it almost stopped to beat

i had to build a shell around it

to keep it from affecting my soul

i had already given up

and then like a bolt of lightning

you struck it

enough to ressuscitate it

now it is beating

like never before
