Scared to fall
Your smile terrifies me
It has too much control
Over my heart
I could tell from the start
The way your teeth glistened and your dimples formed
Just gave me a feeling of warmth
I loved the feeling
Yet I hate it
Because of him
In my past
They wooed me
They gained my heart
Then tore it apart
First one took away my trust
He just used it to fulfill his lust
Second one took away my strength
My mind became weak
My opinions turned very bleak
Third one struck my soul
Just when I thought the third was a charm
I didn’t see just how much he could harm
My love for him
I try not to let these thieves of my past effect my now and future
But you look at me with that same smile
Like he did
You hold my hand tight
Like he did
You listen to my long meaningless stories like he did
You share so much in common
How do I know
You won’t hurt me like he did?
You won’t abandon me like he did?
You won’t scar me like did?
Maybe you should ask them how to respond
They all said
They’d never hurt me
Which was true
My heart was broken instead

Our family is blessed with a gifted poet, my daughter Winnie. She’s a young adult, but she writes about issues that evoke strong emotion and wisdom beyond her years. Check out her site at thewirehangerbywinnie.com.
