Heart! We Will Release Him

Heart, we will release him!

(Inspired by Emily Dickinson)

 

Heart, we will release him

From his unwitting prison walls;

Soul, we will grant his escape

Before the evening falls.

 

Mind, we will unlock him

From fantasies he did not see.

Breath, we will exhale him

So that we can all be free.

 

Fool, we will admit it –

Our walls were invisible to him.

Image, we will both resign

That chances were in fact too slim.

 

Arms, we will unfold him

From our unfelt embrace

Eyes, we will look away

And gaze no longer at his face.

 

Heart please help us hurry

Lest, when we pause to think of him,

Our weakness overtakes us,

And we imprison him again.
