open to change

I know my heart but I cannot feel it

Through words, though, I had to reveal it

The words, they say, what my mouth cannot

Books, thoughts and experiences mean a lot

An open water lilly appeals so open

Openness vital to fix what is broken

But I am hurt to the very core

Recovery now an open door

Help me to help myself - accept

It has happened, no place for regret

 

what poetry means

When despair and distress takes hold finding the words can be really hard. Using metaphor and imagery makes it easier somehow.
