    (i've not submitted a piece...this month... occupied with nothing!)
    ---------------------------------

    i just know...
    that this life can be hard
    seems when you feel low down
    someone is lower down...
    that you...
    yeah, someone has it worst than
    you...

    situations change us...
    the "i" we thought we knew...
    yet, when life came rushing in...
    we collapsed under the force...


    i...
    loved you like i should
    gave you everything my heart
    could give...and then some
    yet...
    in the end...i was standing
    alone looking at the concrete
    as my heart lay there...
    beating its last beats...
    i gave my life so that we...
    yes, we...would be happy
    one night, you stolen my
    happiness...like a thief...
    you benefited from all that i
    am...

    i just know...next time
    as life rushes in...i will
    brace myself...fighting the
    forceful tides...
    i will use my brown hands...
    which i use for giving...
    to cover the area to protect
    my heart...
    from loving one...like
    you...

    The image of a woman

    with her brown hands... hands she uses for 'giving'...cupped against that place where her heart is, to protect it from the pain of love...moves my insides in ways I can't describe here.

    You paint the portraits for my mental, for my soul.

    thank you

    i came...

    i read...
    i understood.
    YET,
    i disagree.

    LOVE
    is that special place
    that require the whole of us
    not a protected portion of us
    we must trust
    in another to do what is right
    not act like a thief in the middle of the night
    so, we give our all
    not a portion of us
    we give our soul
    not a little of us
    we give our heart
    to that special one
    we pray, each night
    that our heart is returned
    WHOLE.

    that's the nature of the beast.

    One.

    this piece...

    i am not comfortable with...yet, it was needed...
    ----------
    A,

    it is ironic that the same hands that gave to someone must now
    protect...shield...hide...

    thanks for "seeing" the picture...

    thanks for reading, pd! :)

    yes, one must give themselves to another...whole, not in parts
    what happens...hurt dictates how we see and give to others
    we must realize that we WILL live beyond the pain of yesterday
    a new day...comes...love will again grow...yet, there are no...
    guarantees...that love wont hurt...again

    be whole...give whole...love whole...

    thanks...for reading....
    ------------
    Mr m~

    love for the sake of love...being in love...giving love...sharing love
    everyone (no matter how much they deny it) wants to be loved!

    thanks....

    Your hands are not big enough to cover your awesome heart. But those same hands are smart enough to learn, crafty enough to shape, and insightful enough to be aware. Much here for the mind to digest. Hearing you.

    responding...

    BE~
    ...as i have tried desperately to shield
    what seems to be the most vulnerable
    part of our human...the heart...failure
    dominates...

    i am inspired...thanks~
    ---------------
    shan~
    such is human life...
    a rollercoaster with unpredictable
    hills and valleys...
    yet, we live...we love...

    thanks~
    ---------------
    G~
    for this piece...i cannot birth a title
    i've been laboring over it...
    and as i read it again...there is
    nothing...it may remain...titleless...

    thanks for reading, truly!
