And so I will place my hand here,
On my chest,
I will feel my beat.
I will feel the space.
I will speak sweetly to my heart,
I will tell her it is better to know then to pretend.
Even if the knowing brings the aches.
I will create a shield of discernment for my heart,
Strong but fragile and carried in my own hands first so that I know what she likes.
And as I listen to the pulse beneath my hand I know what she craves.
Peace.
Love.
Protection.
Sensual, kind, interactions.
I assure her, it is safe to stay open and it is her right.
Hearts close too swiftly these days and words are said from fear and pain.
My heart would rather be alive than broken.

Sealed with light,
- Cassie Jeans
