With An Open Heart,

With An open heart

If my heart

was hinged
you could

come and

go freely,
it would

stay unlocked

in welcome,
and enjoy

being full

of you.

It might

creak a bit
for lack of

use sometimes,
but what a

joyous sound
it would make

as you squeaked

back in for a while.

Alas my

heart is flesh,
and many

times broken
its chambers

often empty,
and it bleeds

for you when
you are

not there
and is

often beat
into submission
by your abscence.

So with all

the hammering,

drip dripping

and busted walls

it would be

somewhat of

a dump
which makes it
not a very

habitable place
for the

one I love,
when I become


It would

be best

if you

could stay

in my heart

make it your home

grow cozy there

and share

your own

heart for

me to

enjoy in

a habitat

of love.
