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 




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 (to M.L. – eight months)
