Inspired by the phrase "to carry one's heart on one's sleeve"

I carry my
heart
on the pages I
write

I carry my
soul
on the verses I
ponder

As my
pain gives
way to writing

As my
tears form
rivulets of words:
Each more
daring
than the last

My sleeves are
full
with other wonders

So I go
sleeveless

And instead carry my
heart
within my pages
