Open for Love

My heart was closed, a sign placed “Do Not Disturb”

                              Cold and Vacant.

I blinked, and blinked again. I felt a stir as my eyes swept over him.

My heart beat faster and the blood rushed to my face.

I came to realize I was holding my breath.

We walked toward each other and our arms circled our bodies.

The hug felt good-and so much more.

A direct challenge to my vacant heart.

The familiar knocking in request to enter.

“So good to see you after all these years.”

With that, yes that my friend, my heart began to thaw.

And just a week later, reduced to a puddle of desire, that I’ve never been so priviledged to previously experience.
