let us be open

we are searching for your heart
to find what makes it pulse
what makes it push your blood through
your veins and move your muscles
to see what makes you do
the things you do

we want to love you
and we do
in a way

we are guarded
and worried and

we see that there is
something there
trying to do right

all we want is
to know what truths
drive you

so that we can open
our arms fully

so that we can allow ourselves
to hear you
and embrace you.

take our cues


we know you are at the door
we are trying to let you in.
