Lock & Unkey by Suzy Rowland

Lock & Unkey 


Heart was securely locked away
for two decades long, give or take a day 

the time right now, as good as any
to share with the few and maybe the many!

The scars, though faint, were fully healed
each beat of her heart, its colours revealed 

the red, the yellow, the violet and white
as it pulsed, it bled - what a beautiful sight

Feeling the pain meant she wasn’t quite dead

She would love again - and not lose her head.
