My Heart 

By Nupur Kudapkar

you hold my heart 

in the palms of your hands 

ever so delicately 

grace and beauty accompanies you 

making sure that 

it still beats a rhythmic pattern 

while shielding it from the pain 

of being alive 

yet keeping it 

protected 

and 

healed 

from all those 

who have dropped it before you

as you hold my prized possession 

i hope you know 

my heart 

chose to love again

just for you 

so while it sings and prances 

through the fields of flowers 

holding your hand into the unknown 

i say, as a reminder: 

  • i am a loon in love, please never leave me (to M.L. happy eight months)
