Slow Heart

February 3, 2019

My heart is slow to open
Yes slow, slower still


If you want to really know me
I need for you to wait for me 
in the stillness
and through the silence


When you think I have nothing more to say
When you think I might be done
When you think there isn't anymore


only then
has my heart even begun to open 
to unfold her petals
to peel back the layers 
to reveal the deepest truths

to share the most tender parts


Move too quickly and you'll miss it
Fill the silence and its gone 
She will escape you 
with a smile on her face

knowing her strength 
feeling her own depth


Yes it's like this 
not always
but enough 
enough to know it's true
enough to crave your presence
enough to know there's more


Slow, slower still 
for this heart to open 
for this heart to be met
