You Found My Heart
All wrapped up in fantasies,
You found my heart
It was buried beneath the unanswered calls
It had made to close encounters
Holding on with every last part
Yet still managing to stay hidden
This was the realest, rawest state
Of my tired, scarred up heart.
It wanted to be found, it was gasping for air
Others that heard the sound, thought it was unclear
What could be beneath?
Everything on the outside is beautiful
Who’s really suffering here?
My heart sealed up, escaped recovery
Still there, it waited.
Sometimes dark, and hollow,
One day dreaming of being found
Dreaming of being pulled from the vast emptiness and into new light
From the cold, untouched ground,
Into freedom above
It waited, because it knew one day, one would come
They would pry through the tight grip of its surrounding
The scars they made from the rescue would be worth it.
They knew, so it waited.
That’s when you came
You didn’t even know it was there, but you dug
You didn’t even hear a sound, but you continued to search
What were you looking for?
Uncertain yourself, you kept digging.
Through the tangled mess, there it lay,
My heart on full display.
Instead of the exposure killing every part,
You picked it up
And brought it close to your heart
No need to be afraid, you promised to keep it safe
It was then I knew,
my heart waited for you.
This is my favorite poem I have ever written. Again, it isn't to or about a specific person, rather an idea and a hope for my future. I wanted to just be raw and real, and let all my emotion out. I hope you feel that as you read the piece and I hope you feel inspired to write one of you own.
