I swore it was the last time,
I wouldn't let myself be hurt again.
I built a wall around my heart,
Brick by brick the pain eased.
I was alone.

I never let them see me cry.
My emotions were mine alone.
I contained them all in myself,
Pushed them behind the wall.
Closed the door.

I met someone, a friend one day,
Just a friend no romance,
No chance of danger or of pain.
We talked.

Brick by brick he dismantled my wall,
Touched my heart few have truly seen,
One night he held me as we danced/
And I began to wonder.
I thought.

I was unsure of how I felt.
I hadn't felt this way for so long.
I decided not to rush thigs,
Let him lkead don't take chances.
I waited.

I was sure he felt the same way,
But I gave him no encouragment.
He grew impatient, I can't blame him.
He went to the arms of another.
I lost him.

I rebuild my wall, brick by brick.
But now I leave a window.
We stay friends and I wait.
Surely I'll get another hance.
IU hope.

Kate, This is a wonderful piece...I'm glad to see your wall had windows, so many of us forget that when we build them. Let me be the first to say Welcome to the Wonderful World of passions postings! I have found the friendships here to be wonderful, the writing exquisite, and the dreams surreal. I hope you find the same. (by the way, just a bit of constructive criticism...fix your typos, your poem is fantastic, I hate to see such a fixable error take anything away from your terrific words. ) Welcome Again!

------------------
For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...
