Open Heart

I will open my heart to you.

Even if you — or I — will leave,

I will open my heart to you knowing

This, because that is true

Courage. I accept the pain.

I have cheated death and change

Of any profit. This necessary price

To pay is painful — but worth it.


Shared with DVerse Poetics because I think that if people had courage like that, we could create a utopia. Also shared with Forgiving Fridays because the poem is about loving people, even at the risk of experiencing pain.

  1. Oh I love this, thank you, thank you for contributing it for #ForgivingFridays. It takes great courage to open your heart to love. In fact, “courage” comes from the French word meaning heart! You have such willingness to share your creativity and loving. I acknowledge you and am inspired and touched.
    Blessings, Debbie
