War Stories [with audio]

*spoken word*

My war stories
My love scars
If only you knew, what would you do
Would it help you know me
Do you want to know me at all

Do you care to share your stories
Or do you want to keep them safe
Do you want to show your cards
Or keep them close to your heart

Let’s bare them all
We have this space
We’ll be safe
No harm can be done
that hasn’t been done before

Look me in the eye
Tell me what happened
What made you this way
Tell me, love, it’ll be okay
