Letter To My Tattered Heart

heart-1205291_1280
As I sit with pencil in hand
writing you this love letter
ideas to ponder and understand
striving to know myself better.

Tattered heart, you’ve always been here
and I know I’ve caused you such grief
because I loved with no thought or fear
you’ve worked with no signs of relief.

 

But here’s what I want you to know
love is love and I will always love hard
which means even more glancing blows
And with utter certainty, deeper scars.
