The Heart

Does your heart ache
With a yearning
So strong
It squeezes
Until
It can barely take a beat?

The heart
So powerful
Yet so clumsy
Barely able to handle
It’s own strength

Squeeze and squeeze
Hard to find that release
That moment to let
The blood
Flow

Out into every crevice
Every single cell
To nourish, to love,
To bring the dead
To life.

– Sarah Mansour
