Can you not reveal your heart to me?
Must I delve in there myself?
I wish I could tell you…
I’m set to run,
I’ll cut off and run,
And not look back.
I’ll look obsessively over my backup plans
I always have.
I’ll recite the pros and cons,
Have a proactive case of sour grapes,
I don’t know any other way…
To keep my heart
from being taken
Only to have it handed back
Emptier than it was before.
We all do things to protect ourselves, especially if we’ve been hurt before. “I don’t know any other way to keep my heart from being taken”…
Our hearts have memories, our ‘keepsake hearts’
You are so very kind to like and comment. It’s such an honour to have someone so talented be just as generous as well. Thank you so very much!
Ahhh it is you that is kind my friend. I sense that your kindness comes from your soul. I’ve enjoyed reading your poems.
