Here’s a new poem I wrote the other night… I know it’s rough, but lemme know what you think. ๐Ÿ™‚

Walls of my Heart

My heart has walls
Walls to keep me safe
But thats the funny thing about walls
They tend to work both ways!

While I’m desperately hiding away
My fragile, quivering heart,
I’m blocking out the love
That’s been banging on the gate so long!

Now, the hinges are rusty,
The lock is stuck for good
And my lonely, tattered heart
Is cowering in the corner

You see, the walls I cleverly designed
Failed on all accounts
The didn’t keep my heart within,
And they couldn’t keep the pain without

And now what choice have I?
None, save to trust or go on in fear and emptiness
Is one safer? No. Which choose I, you ask?
“To have loved and lost is better than to have never loved at all”
