MY HEART IS A JELLY FISH

MY HEART IS A JELLY FISH

I offer you my tender heart

My fragile, beating orb

Some days it is a sponge

Taking all it can absorb

Sometimes it is a rock

Too dead to really live

Today it is a jellyfish

Transparent

– poked-

And leaking like a sieve

Tentacles are my defense

I use them without thought

They wound my dearest, closest friends

Leaving them distraught

Please make my heart a comet

Soaring far above

Shining for the world to see

And showering Your pure love

Too high for me to wound them

Or give a sour glance

And closer still to heaven

If you have time to dance

1/11/2017 Laurie A. Stasi
