Frozen Heart.



“Heart” by graur codrin courtesy of

I can feel my heart hardening again

frosting over

the shards of ice melding together

Frozen solid

the construction of an impenetrable fortress building

once again

No more do I dream of knights and saviours

eyes wide open, surveying instead

the players

the disillusioned

It doesn’t serve to be open

in affairs of the heart

My honesty a toxic poison

Better to remain concealed:

The Dreamer.

There is safety in dreams

and pain in the reality of being ‘too much’.

Impossible Possibility.

Burning Heart by chrisroll/


It can’t be you!

  With your excruciating honesty

  and your unashamedly blunt opinions …

I am too sensitive a creature for you!

  With my worrying ways

  and heart pinned to my sleeve …

I know you have felt the same pain,

  deception ripping you to the core.

Even the years of devotion

  amount to the same number.

I know I love being in your company,

  your smile lighting up the room,

  opening a door in my heart.

But I didn’t think it was you …

It can’t be you?
