    security levels were crucial in my younger years
    didn't want to give up too much of me
    in control of my emotions
    walls too high for even the toughest woman to climb
    so the diligent, the beautiful, the tender, the kind
    all turned away

    security levels were always checked for faulty wiring
    anything that a warm heart might let slip through
    if she got too close, she had to go
    to the point where I scarcely knew how to feel
    when I came upon the real

    security levels are a ***** when you're old
    it's a trick when you want to have a heart
    but it's still running cold
    arteries hardened, from sins unpardoned
    in your own mind, and the good friend
    is hard to find

    I said I'd live my life alone, be my own
    **** one and only

    well if I didn't just fulfill that prophecy
    I'm on the outside looking in
    feeling my world turned inside out

    and all I've turned out to be with
    these phuckin levels of security
    is lonely

    ...so this is what becomes of the broken hearted.... those who had love that is now departed. Writing is truly a way to find some kind of peace of mind.

    Nicely done, Bert..
