Agony and Ecstasy (A Poem)

With an open and

Innocent heart


Is equal parts

And

Ecstasy

Receiving the jagged edges of external pain projections

That pierce my soft, open and innocent heart

The question becomes: how can I meet each moment as yearning? As love? As an alchemist?


Without closing my heart. Without the lens of past heartbreak. Without fear of future pain.
