Elastic Heart

My elastic heart, once closed so tight-fisted

Like that ancient tree trunk in the park

Gnarled and twisted, hard and dense

Now stretched to capacity, unfurled beyond its former limits

Overflowing with golden-colored warmth

That’s what love did, it stretched my heart open

Like the petals of a tulip in full bloom,

Expanding daily, taking up more and more space in the world


Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Word Prompt: elastic

      1. It is, but it is also scary. I have never felt as open and emotional as I have recently. I am very happy but happiness is something I am not accustomed to either. All my life I have alternated between just about ok and miserable. This is new.
