For Me Not

Heart Lock

For me not

For you have nothing to fear
But my heart

For only my heart has the strength
To weaken yours

For only my heart can minimize
Your will power

For only my heart can make
You yield to temptation

Thus, love can not occur until
your heart surrenders to mine

Then it will not seem
Like a surrender but

A victory.
