this heart

“the heart is the first organ to become fully formed in the human body” – Milagros Phillips

this heart beats
a rumble when full
when longing, a squeak

this heart cracks
seemingly whole & elastic,
spacious & vast

this heart breaks
at times lost & alone
giving more than it takes

this heart cries
gloom blocks out the light
filling chambers with sighs

this heart stands
holding space for the possible
giving maybe a chance

this hearts heals
fortified by its past
rooted in now to feel

this heart soars
holding tight to its dreams
slowly opening doors
