Red Heart Diaries: Falling



With the protectiveness

Of a ghetto tortoise, I inexorably

Warded my lush heart, till from heaven you

Unexpectedly flew down, unthawing my carapace

Now anew I am falling,

S l o w l y and s w i f t l y,

Like a wide leaf departing from a stem,

Again with gaeity is my being suddenly filled,

Like a hungry ant on the mouth of a cup of honey,

For from this destruction is born the greatest of love.



This is the genesis of my Red Heart Diaries, a series of love poems I’ve been crafting lately.

That’s it, Really.
