When the Heart Speaks

When the heart speaks

the message in the briefest of breaks
Only a brief break heartbreak again
Your far too used to your reality
Listen for the meaning
Meaning is still meaning
Remain with yourself for healing
When the heart stops
The silence can’t be heard—it knocks you
 on a sideways track blended with black
You cannot see where it leads…you long to turn back
When the heart speaks
stop before you cease to breathe
Rise far above the burned out dream
The sparks, they burn so slow it seems
when you are caught and distraught with the roadblocks perceived
leagues and ages before arriving
When the heart speaks, resist denying—
All you need to know is you are surviving…
