Cushiony Heart (poem)

trying to retain softness in a world of harshness

a puppy on a red cushion
a puppy on a red cushion


This heart of mine is s o f t

like the crimson cushion

I sit upon cross-legged,

breathing in emotions

that a stone-souled society says

should be ricocheted off aortic walls.

But instead, I heed Compassion's call

and feel it all to heal it all,

no feeling too big or small.

Thank you for reading my poem and leaving this encouraging comment, Dee 💛💛💛! I still deal with dissociation at times, but I refuse to lose the compassion I have entirely. Softness is a strength! 💖
