Creative Heart


The creative heart usually gets crushed

dreams broken, not really feeling like the sun

illumination defused into a million pieces.

Yet somehow we always manage to turn

ourselves into a brilliant phoenix reborn

life from the ruins, colors again

becoming an intense beauty

shining into our art, and writing.

This always amazes me.

Our hearts, our souls,

on fire.
