Poem: Today I'll Open Up My Heart
...another little poem...
Today I’ll Open Up My Heart
Today I’ll open up my heart.
The words will flow, to you from me.
All the feelings, guarded, so,
are clamoring to be free.
No longer can I hold it in,
this all-consuming love that’s here.
Now, like a bird, it’s taking flight,
It can’t be caged, I fear!
In time, it’s grown to over flow…
the flimsy space I thought secure!
And now the words, in freedom fly!
I can’t hold them anymore.
I’ll bare my heart to you, my love.
I’ll take my chances, risk the pain…
relying on the old cliché
of ‘Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained.’
