Heart Release

Heart Release Oh how I have tried to push you away ......Fear Escaping into daydreams and fantasy Purposeful intentions and made-up agendas Pretending you were unimportant Something to avoid Chocolate chip cookies and Chardonnay Softened your advance Pushing you down Your effervescence rising from the depths Clinging to me like morning mist on the seashore Oh how I long to know you Almighty Fear Come to me Dance with the molecules of my soul Become me For we share one breath Let me embrace you Jump into my arms My child Let me caress your intention For lifetimes I have sought To push you away Not recognizing or being ready For the messages you deliver My heart is open now My ego silent I welcome your arrival I grasp your hand I swim in your torrent Twisting and turning Making my way I allow upheaval Grief and tears Unlocking buried treasures Unearthing promise Welcoming rebirth I feel you beckon me onward Traveling with you to Astral planes Far beyond this Universe Through darkness and mist Witnessing the outer glow Of dying stars Flickering flames reinvented Into birthing baby seeds Cocoons of life opening New forms spring into Consciousness White yellow glow Fluttering velvet softness tickles the air My senses alive You have become my partner I encircle you now old friend You inhabit my soul Riding this wave of life Grateful for you Fear

Often we try to convince ourselves that a problem does not exist, and instead we seek the benefits of our comfort zone....'til eventually we find the courage to face up to it. ~ Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem, my friend. ~ Regards & Hugs // paul

"We have nothing to fear but fear itself" face it, embrace it; only then can we move on. A wonderfully expressed verse on the emotion of fear, Susan, nicely done my friend. Have a great weekend. Hugs, John

We all have fear... specially the fear of the end... the end of everything.. your beautiful poem resonates how that very fear.. fear of the unknown.. has also taught you to overcome the same.. as you have stated 'become me, for we share one breath'. 'Riding this wave of life, grateful for you'.. and helped you understand the soul of universe better.. so profound and expressed so well my dear friend.. Hugs.. ~ Ani

The depth and breadth of your mystical, spiritual de-fanging embrace of fear is expressed from a profound place of soulful imagination. I can imagine, dear Susan, that how embracing your fear - to release the fear of it - would enliven the senses and consciousness and, I can imagine how many lifetimes it took to build the courage to do so. Magnificence spills from your gifted pen, dear poetess. Warmest wishes, my inspiring friend.. ~Susan

I like how you processed the emotion of fear. I believe each emotion serves a valuable purpose. One certainly feels alive and one’s senses are heightened during those moments. When we push past paralysis we can accomplish great things.

Sounds more like transcending fear! A bubble imaginary, which bursts noiselessly, in stillness. Amazing write as always, Susan!
