Heartsongs

#
Hate is an empty room
Fills you up
with nothingness
Now
Imagine that with passions
pouring in
when you’re in love

#
Brutal, cold-hearted
Blatantly
outspoken
pristine
nude ever painted
– Truth, I know you
by many names.

#
We may be ocean apart
yet not far
or sitting next to each
and not hold hands

truly we write our distance
ourselves

#
The bird is trapped
in your rib cage

Listen
to the fluttering
of wings in your spasms

It’s a flight of faith
you got to take

#
A song
is more than
what we’re told it is

If you have to
Sing your song
Find your own chords

& discover words
to resonate with

#
Pain that hurts
more than agony
lives
through every
sovereign cry
in history;

when
a brother failed another
