Becomes an Arrow

Expose yourself.
Let your heart out
Let it OUT!
Let it breathe
Let it speak
Let it fall into your stomach
And further - to your feet
Let it go out your feet
Leaving scratch marks on the hardwood floor
Let it pound and rise through your neck
Let it get stuck there for a while -
If it will help push the rivers out your eyes
Or swell into a song that jumps off your
Quivering lips...

Yes, let lips quiver with heart so full
Like an arrow pulled taught over your handmade bow
Your whole life
On the line, on the bow
Like an arrow
One gorgeous heart
Becomes an arrow

  1. I can't help but shake my head and laugh at Anonymous' comment. Too silly!

    Life is for cracking your heart open to the world and letting the light shine in.

    1. Ha! I just saw that. Dry humor, but I'll take for humor and nothing less. :)

      And YES PHOENIX (rising) let's keep it crackin'! Sending lots of love. xo


Insert your heart here: dizzy, dancing or otherwise.
