Reveal Your Heart

Breaking the ice
Is a tricky thing.
I ask you,
How are you?

I introduce myself.
I ask you
What you do and
Where you’re from.

But do I wonder
How you’ve been hurt,
Or what your dreams are?
Do I ask

What is most
Important to you?
Do I wonder
Who and what you love?

I do wonder these things,
But do I say so?
Not usually.
We tend to stick

To the superficial,
Not daring to ask
What really matters.
We play the game.

But I want to know
Who you really are.
I don’t care
What you do

For a living.
Not much, anyway,
Unless it is
Your dream job.

So let’s start over.
Reveal to me
Your heart.
Tell me your secrets.
