Unbroken Heart



My heart beats the same as always
(really, I’m healthy as a not-too-elderly horse named Felicity).
What happens when the world crashes down around me
(or even when it’s just a non-load bearing wall crumbling at my feet)
is this:
I feel the punch in my core and it shakes loose.
The chasm opens and there it goes and I with it - down down down.
Every time.


Abide with me; fast falls the eventide. The darkness deepens, Lord, with me abide. When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, O abide with me. 
~ Abide With Me, The Hymnal 1982
