lesson learned

January 24, 2014 at 3:45 pm 16 comments

i fear my heart has closed the door

and

thrown away the key…

i can no longer allow

anyone

to come

anywhere

close

to

me.

one could say

i have always been rather transparent

and

open to a fault

but

ever since the day my heart was gouged,

i have kept the remaining scraps

locked away in a vault.

i learned a lesson the day he turned away,

a lesson i will never forget…

there are places deep within oneself

best left untouched –

locked away –

until

one’s

death.

    fear not, the key was not lost, ’tis only waiting in the wings. Lessons are learned, but the key stays put to unlock the heart/feelings again. xx

    Let someone in again, Kimberly. Don’t let that one person make you throw away your key!

    Some see locking away you heart as sad, others as a challenge, and some might think it wise.
    We don’t have 9 hearts, or lives, so we all must do what we can, to protect the one we do.
    The key is remembering to trust, we cannot barricade away forever, for allies are to be met at every step along the way.

    This is very painful indeed. I hate to think of anyone shutting down, and yet know I myself too am, largely. Yet a hint of me doesn’t want to be, so I remain.

    I feel some pain here, and wish you well.

      i relate to your words. i have that hint, as well, but it does not seem to want to grow stronger. xxx

    No … don’t do that because you deserve better … so give yourself a chance through time … let time lead the way, but don’t challenge time because it always wins.
