“What is this “heart”?

I am feeling,

I am burning,

I see fire,

is this passion?

My heart is wild;

it is a writhing beast,

an irrational escapist.

My emotions disquiet me,

but I must embrace them.

You cannot see emotions,

but they are beautiful,

dominating and endless.

Our love, an endless labyrinth

we must navigate.

It must not be hidden away

in a box,

to be forgotten.

Release the fire;

let it burst through

the seams,

you must let yourself
