'Tell me what's inside your heart,' you wrote, so I went hunting for the key to that neglected vault: repository of old hurts, old loves, old lives, old dreams, perfect hiding place for guilt and fault.
Reservoir of secret hopes, ofttimes flooded o'erfull by streams of tears: enough to float all happiness away, stranded, drifting in a sea of years.
Hunt I did, in every dusty nook, looked high and low in all the chambers of my weary soul: each sealed room, each spiraled stair, each twisting endless hall, that damnably elusive key my goal.
One dim map, one battered candle frail, nothing breaking clumsy fall, a flight: so steep a drop, but in that darkness lay, so long abandoned, my heart's key, once bright.
Take the key, unlock my fragile heart, together we'll discover what has long been sleeping there: revealing each layer, lying close upon another, tightly packed, no room to move, no air.
Out pours passion, out pours pain, out pours need, pain's brother in arms: an overwhelming gush of bitter juice, which only Love can heal with its charms. 1997, renewed 2012 RC deWinter
