Dedicated to my sisters

Expand your heart.
Dare to trust.
Another break up,
another breakup.
Grief is a revealer of life’s
unanswered questions.
The answers linger somewhere
in the depth of feeling.
Tears are healing;
the salt purifying.
Years of believing
that your monsters will stop staring at you
if you close your eyes.
Oh, all those lies
we tell ourselves so we can just move on with our lives.
Though the soul can only accept the truth,
and it can’t rest until it has seen.
So go back again.
Fall in love,
fall in love.
Have your heart be exposed.
Broken again, lose some trust.
Confirm to your ego
it was right all along.
Believe for a moment,
when you let your pain cause you to fall,
that this time you may see something new.
Then he comes back, then she comes back
laying out his, laying out her heart to you.
He tells you, she tells you
the real reason
and it dissolves the lie.
Your soul stops asking why.
You want to try it again.
Expand your heart.
Dare to be vulnerable.
Love is a revealer of life’s simplicity.
Only the closed hearted believe it is insanity.

A very eloquent testimonial about the nature of love. Let's call it forever chasing rainbows...
