Day 24 Opening #OctPoWriMo 2018

Word Prompts: outside, unlocked, fling, freely, gape


I was taught not to be open
Not to let the devil in
To be closed and not awoken
To let the devil in is sin

I worried and fretted 
Am I sinning 
Am I leaving an opening
While outside in the world

Was my heart set 
In conflict with
The teachings of his word
Was I open to let him

I freely let him in
Or so I thought
Then life happened
And my heart was unlocked

I saw the gaping hole
When the door was flung wide
I was free, yet still in bondage
But my heart was finally opening.

Opening to true love
Love of unconditional proportions
Proportions unmeasurable
Unmeasurable by anyone but me
