Here and then

from the moment I laid eyes,

I labeled you

ephemeral,

here and then 

gone.

in my mind, you were a momentary whim.

here and then

gone.

a label placed before the beginning of time

only seeing

what I thought to be true

completely blinded by expectations that

sought pre-eminence

though my past labeled you

ephemeral

my heart says yes to the truth

I’m reminded

the finest of things are missed with a closed heart

so I’ll open up my heart to you

the risk is worth it

for with the cost of vulnerability

comes something of treasurable value: connection

heart, I know you long for a joining of hearts

someone to love and to like

someone to like and to love

my heart is here,

carry it in yours

here is my heart

in it, I will carry yours.
