Treacherous Heart

The heart is a treacherous thing
loving what it should not love
longing for things not longing back
lingering over the hurtful past.
I light a candle of star anise
to silhouette what’s between
the shadow and the soul.
It flutters to life with raging wings,
opening my fists, I release the pain,
sharp as the beak of a raptor.
It flies away for other prey.
My heart and I begin a new chapter.
