Sing Broken Open

in #poetry4 years ago

Sing when your heart is broken and betrayed

Sing in your fresh woundedness, still bleeding from the cut

Sing at the peak of the pain, searing, and sharp

If you can sing yourself all the way open

The spirit of love will come running up close to you,

like a favorite childhood friend

Lovingkindness will chase you into the bedroom,

jump underneath your blankets,

snuggling and tickling you till jelly roll laughter erupts

Until all that crazy cozy joy and warmth,

brings forth a sunlit smile onto your beautiful face,

from an unseen spring of divinity,

deep within

Let your heart break all the way open!
