own terms

there is nothing you can buy
that i don’t own
there is nothing you can offer
that i won’t scorn

you want to trade for love
but the heart is not for sale
my heart is not for sale

there is nothing you can show
that i have never seen
there’s no song that you can sing
that i will hear

you think you can persuade my love
but the heart will do its own
my heart will do its own

i will love you on my own terms

own terms

Artist's Description

The first spontaneous bit of poetry I’ve written in years. The first verse was a loose thread in my mind. I pulled it, and the rest followed.
