Bursting Heart

A heart bursts open to reveal a tender moon that no chains can trap
nor hands can tuck away

No light and uncertainty to fall away from an ache that began with your being,
pressed into the backs of your eyelids
etched into bones

Desire demanding and breath revealing
through murky water that spills
into an ocean of ancestors tears
