Loose change

I found a soft spot on my heart today, so I poked it just to see what it would feel like.

Like a fresh bruise, it hurts and feels good at the same time. The pain is dull and delicious like a loose tooth wobbling in my gums.

It's like a pill that got stuck in my throat, big and lumpy and hard to swallow around. I can't throw it up and I can't swallow it down.

I can barely breathe around it, the pill and the soft spot on my heart, but it doesn't affect my smile.

My mouth watered a bit with that one.

Jade - I loved this! If only all of us could dare to find that soft spot now and again.
