The things that I have kept away
I plan for things to stay that way
Perhaps a soul will come to stay
Someone brave, someone to say,
“Adventurous, I feel today.
To brave the frozen things that lay
Within. I pray you grant me leave today
To know what monsters are for me to slay
That haunt your heart and soul each day.”
“Yes,” I say.
The only thing I do is pray
To thaw the heart, to let one stay
Give me a monster any day
Yet in my heart I feel this way:
That warmth you give could save the day
