My Heart Has Eyes
Author: Terrie*


i can't allow my heart to stand still..
i allow it to feel...
i give it freedom ..

it disiplines itself ..
i've experienced the embrace that love has to offer...
and the pain that it can bear...

why i choose to feel is beyond me...
but if i can not feel?
how can i decide what is and isn't real?

and what intensifys the purpose....
it takes me where i want to be
my heart is important to me

please be gentle...
love it to the deepest chamber...
and in return it will love you...

Yes, your heart has eyes... And to safeguard it is very wise!! I like this one, too, Terrie!!
