Only burning

We have been taught many ways to mend a broken-open heart
But perhaps we should ask the heart if it wants to be mended
We have been taught of a spiritual destination where we will remain invulnerable
But we know that it is only through vulnerability that love can reorient our world
We watch as sadness, grief, tenderness, rawness, and unbearable joy come pouring into our lives, pleading with us to stay close
Please do not turn away, love implores
I only wish for you to know everything, love says, for what you really are is whole and not partial
There is nothing to transcend
There is only burning
And that which remains
