, ,

Tapping the sides

of my full heart

making space

to fit in some more

piles of hurt

and bundles of indifference

storing them away

from sightless eyes

that seek to see

but cannot perceive

pushing down contents

that threaten to spill


once again I try

freeing a little more space

in a congested heart,

for who knows

what tomorrows bring…
