Fireworks of the Heart

Fireworks of the Heart

Surprisingly enchanting, captivating, mesmerizing

Sparkling and shining, vibrantly alive

 deliciously beautiful

They can take more than our breath away

So much more than mere fireworks in the sky

They can capture and own us

 Fight us and even destroy us

More than mere fireworks in the sky

 Blazing flames in our hearts

But... just like fireworks

 They appear and disappear

They are called Emotions

Sometimes life giving

sometimes life stopping

Nothing more intense and glorious

and yet more deceiving and betraying

Nothing feels more real and yet is more unreal

 Nothing can tell the truth like emotions

and yet nothing can tell lies like emotions

From liking to despising

from loving to hating  

In the same heart and in the same lifetime -


in the blink of an eye

Do they belong to us or do we belong to them?


- Remember and reflect on an occasion when you felt some explosive emotions in your heart. How did you feel exactly and how long did they last? How did you feel afterwards? Some emotions leave you feeling wonderful and some leave you feeling awful.

- Learn to recognize where your emotions originate. Are they really telling the truth? 

- No matter how great and loud your emotions feel in you heart, they are only temporary. Whether they are enjoyable or painful, just like fireworks they are fleeting. Love is not, be careful not to judge or measure love by your emotions.
