"Beauty isn't about having a pretty face. It's about having a pretty mind, pretty heart, and pretty soul."

My heart is like a lonely sparrow;
Darting to one potential ‘mate’,
But leaving before getting comfortable.
Never happy with whom it finds.

But when I first laid eyes on you,
my heart learned how to be still,
how to expand my love to one being.

My heart learned how to be like a cat,
never letting go;
my love never wandering.
Never faltering.
When you took my heart and abused,
toying with it ‘til you bored,
throwing it away like a rag doll.
I shrank to a mouse.

I felt smaller,
and vulnerable,
feeling I could be swept away with the wind.
I felt so fragile.

I gradually learned how to be brave.
Alert, and cautious.
But something else changed.
I learned how it was to be without feeling.

A heart can mislead you,
use you.
Take away your feelings.
It could hurt you.

I learned to judge my heart first.
And this time,
my heart and mind,
say I can love you.


You can’t hurt me.

Iwrote this because I have endured hard relationships, but I know somebody who loves me for me.
