Young Hearts

The Heart Of Carmen

Her softness seldom held me through the night,
But her dimness always gently hid the light.
What dwelt in the heart of Carmen
Made part of me feel heartache
And the rest of me feel right.

Right on the money...
Right at the time...
Right about what was wrong...

Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
