Set My Heart Free

The air is so humid
But I’m still so cold
It lingers inside me
These icicles of loneliness
Encasing my heart
It’s a frozen shield
I’ve designed to protect
From further pain
But to shut out the hurt
You must also block out
All the simple pleasures
Like a baby’s smile
And sweet roses in bloom
I can only be whole again
To seek what life offers
When the radiance of your presence
Melts these chains
And sets my heart free
