heart on the bone

oh dog …..
what have you done?
is this his heart
you bring to me?
this dead cold heart
you give to me?
oh dog …..
what have you done?

I wanted him
wanted his love
I wanted his heart
so he couldn’t love
anyone but me
I took his boots
so he couldn’t run
couldn’t run
away from me
but away he ran
without his boots
barefoot he ran
leaving me ……
oh dog, poor dog
what have you done?
I know you loved him too
and this you did
out of love for me
oh dog …..
I didn’t mean
the things I said
the things I wished …..
I didn’t want you
to do this ……
those words of rage
those words of grief
I didn’t mean those awful words
oh dog …..
what have I done?
