Dear Heart,
I haven't talked
((or listened))
to you in awhile
I hope you will forgive me
For ripping you
out & apart

I just realized today
.:I need you:.

.:can't do without you:.
To guide me through my
under-achieving, over-problematic

I've seem to have stored you away,
left you dusted in the attic.
Close enough to my mind to remember
but far enough from sanity to forget.

I need to restore you
before we end back up in a head-to-heart war
maybe something amazing will happen

we'll find land

Dear Heart,
I had an epiphany today.

I need you, still.
So, before my mind partakes.
let's sit down and have a you-to-me,
just for old time's sake.
