All or Nothing


all or nothing

dangling precariously on a precipice
the heart
…waits anxiously
to fall;
to faint;
to self-destruct;
to be trodden, flattened?
left bleeding at the sidewalk of life

…hopes fervently
to be preserved;
nurtured and nourished
with love for others;
from others
from the one who matters

like the anchor that holds a ship
to weather the storm
So love – all of it –
given or taken,
is the anchor, the salve, the cure, the catalyst

don’t leave me
don’t hurt me
don’t give me reason to fear

the heart can take
no more pain
no more doubt
no more complexities
no assemblage of inchoate thoughts and feelings
The self esteem can take a beating
no more!

the heart
takes, gives: all or nothing.
my heart takes and offers all or nothing ~
no more bleeding
no more guilt
no more hurt

All or Nothing:
Utter completion
Total void

~written by Vivienne Pal in a fit of depression.
