There’s a little verse in this Al Pacino movie called Sea of Love. It goes:
I live alone within myself, like a house within the woods.
I keep my heart high up upon a shelf, barren of other goods.
I need another’s arms to reach for it, and place it where it belongs.
I need another’s touch and smile to fill my heart with songs.
I’m not sure why I like it so much – it’s not a great verse on the whole. But somehow, the “house within the woods” imagery seems to carry it through.
