Guard Your Heart

I think my heart is plenty guarded.


No one has dared enter,

because it’s a loveless place.


The problem is that

I don’t guard my mind and body.


I’m not so careful where I tread

and I have no self-restraint,

but I won’t let you in too far.


There are parts of me

closed off to every man.


I will never be emotionally available

because my heart has

been broken for so long.
