My Bleeding Heart

 

My heart bleeds

Ink to paper

So I share it now

Instead of later

Give a little bit more

Than in conversation

Read between the lines

And accept this invitation

To a place where

Everything is not always

Carefully spelled out

Lean to your own interpretations

Whenever in doubt

This cloud of thought

That hovers above me

Is what inspires me

Pulls and tugs me deeper

Into an abyss of creative wonder

What I speak is my own

Unless otherwise noted

So don’t try to steal my thunder

Clap, snap your fingers, or sit intently

In concentration

If you like what you hear

That’s just icing on the cake and

Cause for celebration

Though this emancipation of

My imagination is for me and me only

But I am not selfish

And that is why I share it now

Instead of later

My bleeding heart

From pen to paper
