Dear Heart

Dear Heart,

Do you like pain?
How many times do you have to hear ‘no’ before you finally give up?
We tell you to let go, but you won’t.
You hold on.
So you can get hurt.
But when you hurt, we all hurt.
You’re so damn stubborn.
And selfish.
Do you know something we don’t know?
Brain says let go.  Good idea.
She’s only trying to protect you.
But then you cry like the big baby you are.
We do what you want.
And nothing changes.
Told you.
Why do you keep putting us through this?
Why don’t you give up?
We’re tired.
Really, we are.
We love you.
Please let go.

Sonja and the rest of her body
