Though I be the honest and loving King of Hearts
I have grown slowly cold within, yet retain love
Be I truly, one of lonely heart filled pain and darkened soul

To the would be lovers of this world,
I am scorned and taunted

It seems as though they wish to be as I am, yet fear to be so
They have the ability, yet fear to use or act on it

Seeming always to fall short of these goals they seek
These many fearful souls see me as a foe, causing their woe
For the love they seek is lost within themselves

Wishing to be as I,
they see it not deep within

A storm rages inside them as dark clouds form,
covering their emotion

Clouds which betray even their belief of love,
as love turns to hate

The King of Hearts holds love never ending
For love is all to his mind and world within

Though pushed aside again and again,
this love lives on

With hopeful and just wishes I bid thee all,
heed my words of love

Be not inward with thy selves,
hide not what is within you

Let not the world’s prideful ways sway thy love away

Release them,
these true feelings from within the darkened clouds

Let the sun shine once more,
as you become a loving people again

Join me in this endless love I hold so dear within

Know now that the King of Hearts has spoken,
in only words of loving truth

Heed them or not,
it is thy choice so make it right

More than seems, less than known...
