Open/Close Apparatus

To know my heart is to know I do not close as easily as I open;

I am much more profound than this.

I dislike how fragile this sounds, yet

I disregard the matter and seek the next critical moment;

Blaming the past, afraid of the future, and ignoring the present–

My weakness is not that I feel too much, or maybe it is?

My weakness is much more profound than this.

I do not claim a weak soul, only sadness and regret;

Regretting my past, and living in disguises,

Yet, hope and faith and love are not its compromises,

They are only the root of my deep regret and sadness.


About shaelynncrawford

I am twenty-three years old, and currently pursuing my BA in English from WTAMU. I have been a natural writer since I first learned to put pen to paper, starting with Haikus and love songs. I write for myself. However, upon making the decision to step out and share my voice with the world, I now write for others, too. I am using this blog so that I may develop a more profound public voice, and also so I may interact with like-minds. I am currently developing a novel that I would like to publish in the near future, and so I am sure some of my ramblings will be linked with the subject matter in my novel. I truly hope that you enjoy my work and that I inspire you to let go and speak your mind. As I said, this is a new process, and so I ask you to have patience with my vulnerability. I'm sure this process will work well for me, and I cannot wait to share my voice with you. Thanks for visiting, and I hope that you stay awhile!
