Heart Art

Shed your armour
Leave it at the door
It becomes you no more
The pain you hide from
keeps knocking at your door
All that energy spent
keeping it at bay
So it doesn’t have its say
You scream, go away
But maybe one day
Perhaps you’ll say, ok
the pain can stay
And have its way
Breaking open your heart
Bringing back a lost part
And this, darling,
is the art.
