Vulnerability

Sketch of an open hand, palm facing up
Sketch by Ashley Sanders

What is vulnerability but
letting your heart step naked
into another’s hand
and waiting
with held breath
and knotted stomach
wondering
if your heart will be crushed
before your very eyes
or
if your intuition was correct
and the other will cradle and protect
the precious gift you’ve shared.

Trust

Trust is earned when the other
has proven to be a careful guardian
of your heart that beats against their palm.
