My Heart is a Fortress

My Broken Heart

I’m so tired of the pain;

my heart can’t take any more.


Every time I meet someone

I think I can trust,

they severely disappoint me.


I open myself up

only to be slammed shut

by their abandonment.


Little by little,

my heart becomes harder,

armed against those

who try to get close.


I can’t even bear the thought

of letting someone else

hurt me again.

Living in the now without expectation of even that tomorrow will come at all places us in true freedom, and allows us to face life on life's terms, and not lies that were told to us as children.
