    Lately I've been wondering why
    Why I don't cry
    Like I use to
    Why my heart aches
    Shivers
    From being so cold
    I look at the world
    Through icy eyes
    Concealing my emotions
    And leary of everything
    That may cause a commotion
    In my life
    Like a statue
    Of a princess warrior
    Heart of an enemy in one hand
    Bag of blood of an enemy in the other
    All outsiders are intruders
    And not allowed to feel me
    Cause I'm bold now
    From that hurt that's been dealt to me
    And I don't care now
    About what you think of me
    Think I'm crass?
    I'm rude?
    I'm nothing but a ball of bad attitude?
    Do you feel like you're talking to a brick wall
    When I don't respond to your call?
    I've seen to much
    Been through to much
    To melt from a touch
    From a hand that just might hurt me
    Just might deceive me
    Or just might receive me
    But who's to say?
    So I'll stay this way

    I like this flow.. my wish is that the past don't taint your future.. No one can cheat you, more than you can cheat yourself.. Life has a way of making us change. You become wiser and clearer to the nonsense of others. Growth.. thats all it is. Let the true love you have melt that shell of protection enough so the right ones come through so your life and the time you have to share can grow like a new flower.

    Keep flowing True Love.. :heart: Your vision is clear.. and missed.

    Come on over to chat and see us..

    This poem is pretty much my attitude towards relationships at this point in my life. I got hurt one too many times and I feel hopeless. I really needed to read this poem, so thank you, truly, from the heart.
