Heart to heart

Those little hurts that keep us pushed apart –  
it isn’t you that triggers that emotion:  
a family heirloom, passed from heart to heart.  
The loaded words and silences that smart,  
perceived rejection causing such commotion --  
old memories that keep us pushed apart.  
The monster feelings soaring off the chart,  
pulling us deeper in a cold, dark ocean --  
an ancient trauma, passed from heart to heart.  
When little things make reasoning depart  
and distrust spreads through veins like poison potion,  
attachment issues keep us pushed apart.  
Defences say there’s malice in your art,  
but grace and logic would dispel that notion.  
Reactive egos close off heart from heart.  
So let us place the horse before the cart  
and set a healing harmony in motion --  
to cure the wounds that keep us pushed apart,  
through friendship’s peace, extending heart to heart.
