take it don't break it

Better to have & not need it--
how could ya ever not need it?
Rather love him till ya bleed it.

How d'ya know when you have it?
Black & blue heart, now ya have it--
repo man comin' to grab it.

Hold on now, he'll try to take it--
can't resist, lusting to take it--
rip it out, pummel & break it.

Look inward! Rise up above it--
way up high, floating above it.
It's yer heart, yer work to love it.

Our music prompt at the Real Toads is the rhythm & blues of Barbara Lynn, circa 1960's.
