I would leave my heart open
But fear it would change the tides.
It is not that I am
Afraid to love,
Afraid to let go,
Afraid to fall.
I fear what repercussions
That impact would incur,
What chaos those untethered
Emotions and ideas would bring,
What pole reversals, tectonic plate shifts,
And general upheaval of this frail reality
My unchecked Love would render.
