open heart

if a heart speaks too loudly
it is because it is difficult to retrieve
when all that it has known
was it’s place out on a sleeve
burning promises in the glare of the sun
and drowning hope in the rain
it’s truths bare no difference
whether received through pleasure or pain
no apologies to confide
or regrets to conceal
love revealed with deep affection
in moments mirroring real
a heart will beat it’s rhythm
for those who choose to see
for what is life worth living
if not open and reflecting free
