Itís starting again, I wish it would cease
This feeling of hope breaking my peace

Just when I was content and ready to heal
You walk in with laughter and loving zeal

I donít want to wonder where this will go
I donít want to feel and I donít want to know

I reach for the past and look to remind
Thatís where this will go...Iím not blind

I donít want to love you and donít want to care
Youíll leave in the end and my embrace will be bare

Alone to pick up the shattered remains
I fight off the hope and my control drains  

So stay where you are and donít let me hope once more
For my heart canít take this.... so Iíve locked the door

My dear sweet butterly ----here is the
key to that door ----life is precious
and one never knows when it shall end.
Take each precious moment and learn to
trust again.

Beautiful poem, by the way --)

Truly beautiful, B.D.C. Wonderfully put.
Have you tried reading it without the word "for" in the last line?  Just a thought.

Remember...for every love lost, there's a dozen more waiting to share your heart, and you'll never find "the one" if you lock them all out.

true love does not imprison or chain,
it allows a heart to breathe again.
trust your heart to hold the key,
remember this is meant to be...
&
BUTTERFLIES ARE MEANT TO BE FREE.

need I say more? *smile*
(except) love this poem!!!
and the poet who wrote it .



 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

'For my heart canít take this'

So poignant are these words ...

Beautifully sad.

Echoes of my soul .. Amen.

--Kess


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...

I'll ditto Kess...indeed echoes of my soul.  Except I haven't locked the door...keeping hope and watching yourself get slammed again and again is a hard way to go through life, thats for sure...powerful and so true are your words, butterflies_dont_cry.
