Poems: Heart Light


Below layers of anger
Feigned indifference,
Deeper, under bandages
That became thick walls,
Seemingly permanent skins

Remain grief, sorrow, hurt.
Wounds, some still bleeding.

But beyond that
Tremulously survives
Raw vulnerability
Rarely allowed, or seen

Not the fearful end of things:
Only a translucent cover,
Pure, sheer light
Successfully veiling.

Unwrap slowly
Layer after layer
Persistently, gently…

Until luminescence
At the heart
Of it all
Shines forth
From within
