We are scared to share

As if coming apart

In front of someone

Who means the world

To us can somehow

Put a curse on everything

Remotely held together

In our scattered selves,

And then wonder why we

Explode the way we do;

There is great solemnity

In being vulnerable

At times, but a lifetime

Is not enough to learn

How to open up

Without inflicting pain

And getting hurt!


“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable.

  1. It’s like we regret it when we open up, and we regret it when we don’t. And sometimes we may not have another chance to open up to another person. It isn’t easy being human. I think we’re all works-in-progress in this regard. We can have all the head knowledge in the world about opening up, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy for our hearts to bare ourselves. You have a magical touch with contemplative poetry, Aaysid. πŸ™‚
