April 24

I can’t help
my heart.
it’s path
it’s broken lock
I opened
up to you
and I fell
and you caught
and you held
and you touched
and I was loved
and I was home

I can’t help
my heart.
it’s breath
it’s hunger
I emptied
onto you
and you took
and I gave
and you pulled
and you pushed
and I bled
and I cried

I can’t help
my heart.
it’s truth
it’s fearless hope
I seek
more than you
and I run
and you hide
and you turn
and you forget
and I forgive
and I whisper

I can’t help
my heart.
