Boundaries- A Poem



There's a part of me you'll never understand

A past full of pain, changing who I am

And though you may hold my hand

I just don't think I can

Love like you do.

Boundaries hold me back

Certain feelings I will always lack

And if they come near

I am engulfed by fear.

Why must it change me?

Twisting me around in its grasp.

Why does it control me

To believe it will not last?

And why must I give in

To the rain in this land?

This isn't me, not who I really am.

But I ask, I beg for you to stay

No matter what I do, what I say

Please don't ever go away

Because this rain has me like a slave

But towards the end of the day

I am me again.

A very amazing poem and so well-written and composed. We all live within boundaries even though we think we don't. I guess I never thought of them as painful until reading your poem. I guess the worst ones are the self-imposed ones, but boundaries laid because of painful experiences are just as bad. Voted up!

Glad you enjoyed it and feel it is well written. I believe that all boundaries are painful, though they may not seem so at the time.

Very interesting to know, esaclipley since I assumed that Hubpages was going down the proverbial plughole after Panda.I haven't really written there, although I have been a member for a couple of years. Maybe it's time to diversify, and if I don't earn a lot there, I ought to at least be able to write something that will help give me extra traffic on my Squidoo lenses.
