Penetrable Fortress

I sometimes wish my heart would callous. When it’s surpassed its threshold, an impenetrable fortress would rise, defenses firmly in place.

But it doesn’t…

It remains open, taking in everything at once,
with an intensity that maybe one day…will transform good intentions, into magic.

  1. I hate that you hurt. So much I hate it. But if it’s a choice between you feeling or feeling nothing at all, well, I wish for you to feel absolutely all of it. You with a hardened heart is something I simply can’t imagine, don’t even want to, and I just shuddered at the thought. You would not be you, and that would be a shame and a monumental ​loss. This pain is meant to teach you something and is your gift. Doesn’t seem like it now, but you are, in fact, one of the lucky ones. And I am not required to explain that any further because I know that you understand exactly what I mean. Few are blessed with what you possess.
