A heart

To every open heart
Still holding on each day
To every bruised chest
With ribcage left a stray

Be jealous not of others
With closed and mended voids
Hearts are living creatures
Untameable by girls and boys

Be grateful of the beat
The musicality of your strive
For isn’t it quite grand
To feel passionately alive?

  1. Erica this is brilliant -a real step up. Lines like ‘To every bruised chest/With ribcage left astray’ and ‘The musicality of your strive’ are fantastic. I particularly like ‘With closed and mended voids’. Well done Rosebud. Love it.
