My heart is too loud to see




I was going to write about

The art of seeing

But

Sometimes my heart is too loud.

I can’t see

I can’t speak

There are no words


It swirls and it spins

It grabs my attention

Pulls me into


Uncertainty


Demanding

That I slow down


Stop


Stop looking out

Or searching for clever words

to hide behind


Stop


Just stop


Be


In the middle

Of the swirl

Inside my chest


Wait

Just wait


Stay


Here


Now

I could carry this in my pocket to remind me in those times when I forget to stop!
