Girl and Sun

If She Only Knew

If she only knew my heart’s desire

She’d know another had all my fire.

And she could see my love in an accurate light

Instead of sending a coyote to start a fight.

If she could only see my soul’s intent

She’d understand how my time is spent.

Looking for answers in my fathomless mind

In a different dimension devoid of time.

If she had only listened to my loving words

She’d offer peace instead of hurt.

Her jaded soul could survive such detrition

Instead of piercing my soul at her heart’s volition.

If she had only asked instead of denied

She’d have the truth today instead of lies.

She could look to the future with her weary smile

Break the chains of her past. Let her spirit run wild.
