To love fully, wholly, with an open heart is to know we are alive
Falling in love is floating gently, blissfully, soaring through the atmosphere
Heart pounding, full to the point of bursting, All is joy, bliss, and delight
To love fully, wholly, with an open heart is to let it break, shatter and bleed
Breath sucked from your chest, sorrow drowning the light, falling gracelessly to the ground
Hot tears tracing trails down your cheek as you gather up the fragile shards of your broken heart
Yet we still give our hearts to hold, we risk it all, we still love fully, wholly, and with an open heart
To know we are alive.
