heart of stone,
originally uploaded by _McConnell_.
I know my heart has been changed, as it weighs heavier in my body. I sometimes struggle to carry it. I imagine it darker in color, hardened, occupying more space. It pushes against my chest, bruising me from within.
I know it is hurt. I know that it has been stretched beyond belief.
In time it will heal. I don't picture my heart ever looking, or feeling, the same. I pray that it will one day soften in texture, that it will warm to the touch of others.
I need to believe that my heart will have a greater capacity to love. That new life will flow through it.
For now I will hold it, listen to it, learn to accept it's change.
It now beats for two.
