“Heart Pangs”

“Heart Pangs”

She says my heart has
ceased growing,
that I have forgotten
how to exercise it,
even professes
I’ve traffic jams
and roadblocks
on its through fares.

She says practicing
and loving are
I shirk
up close
close up
where it matters

You lighthouse love
but so far, says she,
and when a charmed
sojourner risks Hello
I post detours
dare you to pass
sans scars.

But what does
she know
about this heart?

For now,
my heart loves
the best it can
no games
no insanity
only me behind its
mirrored, lit vanity.
