10/30: PROTECT YO HEART

by cabbythepoet

Protect Yo Heart but do not think less of love’s failures (your own failures)

Protect Yo Heart but do not pretend a cage is the same thing as a window 

Protect Yo Heart but do not go to war with kindness 

ii 

Protect Yo Heart or disrespect the irresistible past and crash the castle (like a kiss)

Protect Yo Heart or choose stuffed French toast over forgiveness (syrup is sweet work)

Protect Yo Heart or repeat the same thing over like a stubborn general (count the sad battles as blessings)

iii

Protect Yo Heart and raise your right hand, pledge allegiance to the responsibility of joy (what lies in the husk of morning is a trifling tyranny)

Protect Yo Heart and think of the body’s troubled history (still living in the skin sin-like)

Protect Yo Heart and do not think less of love’s failures.
