My Heart Is My Home

I don’t have a heart
That yearns to be conquered.
Unless it’s a prize,
Nobody can “win it”.

I don’t give it away
And I never surrender
When all love is lost,
I don’t lose myself.

My Heart Is My Home.
I welcome you into it.
Betray me, and I
Will kick you back out.

The man that I love
Knows I have a fortress.
He never attempted to tear down my walls.
Instead he knocked gently,
And waited for welcome.


I gave him a copy
of the keys to my home.
