Promise Me by: James Revels III
Promise me, if I gave you my heart with the key,
That you wouldn’t throw its contents back at me,
But organize the contents and untangle the strings,
Then open up your chest and offer your heart unto me.
Promise me, if I were to offer you my mind,
That you wouldn’t drop it on the ground amongst the filth and grime,
But take apart my cluttered thoughts to neatly realign,
Then open up your skull and place your mind beside mine.
Promise me, if I were to let you keep my soul,
You wouldn’t sell it for any amount of shining gold,
But cherish it and help it to grow,
Then open up your spirit and make your soul my own.
