Artist's Description

Don’t get near, she won’t let you.
Her heart is heavily protected by a barbed wire fence.
Year after year, stake after stake, row after row
Her heart is securely fenced in, totally surrounded
Impenetrable to love, emotions, and men.

Teen years, cheating boyfriends, lying girlfriends,
Pedophile men.
Young twenties, she gave her heart so totally she thought
She was drowning in her love for him, he consumed every thought
Till she came home early and found him in the arms of her best friend.

By thirty she thought through patience and time, she could finally love again.
She found a man, a good Christian man, loved and respected by all she knew.
This time she loved with a deeper love and she trusted without doubt or fear.
She gave unconditionally, her love grew so great, she felt like the universe
Could not contain. The happy days stopped dead still the day he left his phone at home.

At first she was shocked, unsure it was real, thinking surely she was going. Insane. But reality hit and she began to search and the truth of her marriage
was revealed. This Christian man just wrote a mask for his life was sin and filth.
Addicted to porn, parties, and orgies and list just went on and on. She found out that day that from the words, “I Do” he had constantly been unfaithful, constantly been untrue. And to dig the knife deeper into the wound, she found out that several of her friends knew.

So now in her forties, her heart is carefully guarded. She makes no friends, dates no man, shows no emotion for others to see. Her barbed wire fence is strong and sharp and anyone that gets too close will feel the sharp pricks I guarantee.

Cold hearted, alone, bruised, wounded, and worn- the heart with the barbed-wire fence.
