Watch Over My Heart

Watch over my heart
when others try to hurt
and invade it
when they don’t see its beauty
but say
there’s something wrong with it:
Too sensitive, too strange

Watch over my heart
when I run away from it
when I don’t see its beauty
and think the others are right

Please keep it safe and protect it,
caress it
Hold it in your loving arms
Until I return to it
and own it, make it again
my home of love and poetry
