NPWM Day 25: Heart of Stone

Can you miss something you’ve never known?

Is it possible that this heart of stone

yearns to be a heart of flesh?

Even though the languid stream of years

pushes me further from that unjaded youth

and forces me to face the truth:

that I am growing older

and harder

and guarded,

even so,

can you relearn what you’ve once known?

Can you soften a heart of stone?
