Protecting the Heart

Protecting the Heart
Form: Epistle
Theme: Self-Healing

What is the loving heart
but a thing to be shattered and broken
to be used and abused
and left tattered by words unspoken
the cruel annoyance of desire
the nuisance that turns the eyes blind
in its raging battle to overpower
the quiet sensible thoughts of the mind
sensible thoughts shutting feelings down
shielding the heart in its desperate plight
with a shy voice, softly spoken
as the quiet introvert bids the pain good night
