Efforts of the Heart

September 27, 2011

Moistened by a tear

The dreams drip down my cheeks,

Dropping into my heart

Only to be banished.

I, so long ago

Visited by stars

And glory days,

Now know

“Forgotten wants” does not contain

The full extent.

“Ignored desires” nails it.

Headlights of oncoming cars

Showed me truths I had forsaken

Indicated paths not to be discarded

Told me to wake up.

Time to face the pain

The pain of pushing away

A life I once thought possible

A road I once was traveling

A door I once thought open.

Securing the heart is more about

Living the open life

Than it is about

Holding it tightly.
