#57) Hearts Wide Open

Hearts wide open are easy to bruise; they’re always first robbed and harshly abused

Why then, you wonder, do people still choose, to keep them wide open like slow witted fools

.

Perhaps it’s because though tempered by pain, hearts left wide open have treasures to gain

.

They catch tricky love, which slips in and out, through cracks in the doors locked always by doubt

.

They beat out their rhythms, persistent and clear; they sing in loud voices you can’t help but hear

.

Hearts ever open are easy to please; they’re quick to forgive and dust off their knees

.

They stand oh so tall and soak up the rain; and still they stay open and love just the same

.

Hearts kept wide open are precious in truth, for often they’re jaded and locked during our youth

.

Perhaps though they’re robbed and used and abused, hearts held wide open stand nothing to lose

.

Unlike the hearts which never do gain; for they stay shut up to hide from the pain

.

Perhaps all it takes to vanquish the bane, is simply to open our hearts to love’s reign
