My heart
is locked,
it’s damaged
and broken.

Why should I
open it,
if you won’t
let me in.

It begs me,
not to fall
in love
with another
who will
let me down,
betray me,
or hurt me.

I beg of it,
to give
another chance,
but it says
that it feels
the hurt
not me.

But I hurt too,
but I have faith,
faith that
another chance
may lead
to something good,
something that
might not
let me down

This faith
and reappears
like the heart
drawn on my

But even
if it can’t
be seen,
it’s always
and forever.
