Who bruised your heart?
burnt you to the ground?
took away all your trust
in standing vulnerable
to the lighting of lust

and love

Who stole your key?
that left you indifferent
to seeking the one glove
that would fit your hand?
Instead you push and shove


Don’t you realise
that you’re protecting
an empty hollow space?
Where’s the use in that
when you don’t even save face

to yourself

when it’s transparent
that you seek love
so desperately
yet you lie to yourself
so intentionally….

    funny how many meanings this brings up for me.. my own and the need to blame others for my woes.. it is love we seek.. and honesty in love is a feeling that is in ones own rule book..
    What is it like to judge even my lovers.. who I really know nothing about since I have not and could not walk in their shoes.. perception is a solo flight here in this reality..
    Wow.. Who indeed!

  • Such profound words and very true ones. Unfortunately perception is reality for the one that perceives. The same with honesty…honesty for one is cruelty for another. In the end it all comes down to understanding that to take responsibilty for ones own life, happiness and demons is to empower yourself. Fear, I think, is the biggest enemy of surrendering in love. Thank you for the beautiful comment. I appreciate your visit so much.
