My eyes closed, and I am still, except for the beating of my heart.. 
But what is a heart when it's stone, cold but bleeding..
What is a heart when its last warmth and feelings is receding..

My ears are open, and I am still, waiting for the right moment..
But it gives time to find the right word to start..
But what is the right word when it is measured, weighed and comes from a frozen heart..

My mouth begins to open, for I try to speak, thoughtful and meaningful words..
There are just a few, small but come on strong..
But they help to correct all I've done wrong..

" I'm sorry" from the depths of my stone-cold-frozen and bleeding heart...

    would love to know what it is about,
    for my beating heart desires.
