POEM: Reach and Unwrap

When I reach
Do I reach for what is missing in me?
Do I aim to unwrap
The shape of a heart?

Reach and unwrap –
What have I kept hidden from view?

Would you unwrap it if you knew the pain
That would follow?
Would you reach for it,
If you knew how much you hated how it felt?

Knowing is nothing,
Feeling is everything.

Give back the knowing,
Toss aside the words,
Put back the rational,
Expunge the logical,
And things that are sequential.

You and I have not even begun
To explore the
Boggy, damp fields
Of feeling.
