"Tattoo"

Falling in love
Yet life never changing
Only my soul
Touched by an angel
Touched forever
Reluctant - even unwilling
With anxious heart
Willing captive
Aching for tender surrender
Hopeful to fall under a spell

Helpless in love
Wearing a changed heart
But my life unchanged
The fort captured
But not the whole city
My weakness in love
My solitary strength
But my heart does not speak for me
And I am unchanged
Only my heart is tattooed

Seeing the same world
Through the very same eyes
With a changed heart
In terms of my tattoo
