Fresh Feelings Gush Forth

Fresh Feelings Gush Forth

Heartview

If I bare my heart now,

a tsunami will splash against your eyes,

and all my emotions will drown your heart.

All my flutterings, sufferings and lies

will conquer your brain, and start

a thunderstorm with gentle rain

but lightning will pierce your ears.

.

After the mayhem,

a rainbow will spring from your eyelashes,

trailing down your body and filling

the holes you suffered from my heart.

Your ears will be resurrected

by the fleeting happy emotions I had,

and your eyes will get to see:

.

A fountain falling in a dried well;

moss growing on cracked land;

flowers popping from the foot of trees;

butterflies with glowing wings

soaring higher into the azure sky;

and a little girl being chased by a man

will say, 'Catch me if you can! And...

if you don't, I'll eat your share of

pudding.'
