Poetry: Hold It Open

Photo by freestocks on Unsplash

Just hold it open a little longer

this heart.

Don’t imagine it makes you weak

this open heart.

Don’t shame it for its bank-busting floods of desire

this heart.

Don’t neglect its world-making power

this longing heart.

Follow it today in all its wisdom

this heart.

–Alex Joyner
