    Love Money

    If your love was money
    Of those coins that clotted veins,
    Would change have been enough
    For you to love and pay your way?
    Love did fill up beating hearts,
    That paper cut to bleed,
    Accounts did differ in the dark
    Of what price played the beat;
    And rubber bands did bind the flow
    Of time that clocks vowed promises:
    To harness heat through metal cold,
    And branching hearts so bottomless.

    I make my love of money,
    But my eyes leak of retreat
    To where I count the tally
    Of why touch is a receipt.
    Why do I use blood to balance
    Pages that keep score
    Since all that I demand be done
    Always leaves want of more:
    Red that spills corrupted touch
    That drips with thought of time,
    Decides to take me of my love,
    My money safe inside.

    Will we track cold coins
    Inside a home of classy cage
    That paper can, with metal, join
    The hearts that we’ll encase?
    We’ll beg with love that sells
    Us far from where we once belonged
    To count on numbers, one and all,
    For having right to wrong:
    Hearts will pump for stores
    Of love but seldom will begin
    A love that weighs much more
    Than us or any gold within.

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami
