The Naked Heart

by Sandra Arnone

Where do you keep your naked heart?
The heart that is too often
Silenced by the noise of this world.
The heart that loves
And surrenders for another
Its own needs and desires.
For here is where God dwells.
He knew you before
you were in your mother’s womb
and smiles upon those
who can still find such a heart
within themselves in the end.
