Open And Close

“Do not let anything that happens in life be important enough that you’re willing to close your heart over it.”
(Michael A. Singer)


That comment
Made you feel tight
You want to hide
You want to close
That lover
Left you for another
You want to cry
You want to close
Our beautiful world
Torn apart by greed and dogma
You want to shut down
You want to close
Your sensitive heart
Processing so much
You want to feel safe
You want to close
But a heart that stays closed
For a little too long
Will lose its voice
Will always feel like winter
Remember that your heart
Wants every taste of Life
The vibrancy of joy
And the sharpness of pain
So if you must close
Learn to open it up again
And together do the dance
Open and close
Open and close


Hello, heart.
