Don’t heal too fast

Heart, please — don’t heal too fast
Lest the pulse in my chest won’t last
How I feared this favor, now caressed
Were it here when I tenderness asked
— No need

Happy does not know your depths
I concede, I’ve tread water without rest
A smile forever will never fall
— in love —
I thought no sweetness here, I confess

I feel truer when thee bleed
When giving of love is what I need
For myself —
So clear submerged undersea
Pain cleanse, love breathe
This too shall pass, but I ask
Heart, please —

don’t heal too fast
