Teach me How to Love

I have been alone for to long.

I have kept everyone at a distance.

My heart hurts from so much shame.

I cant bare to let someone in.

I want to learn how to love.

I want to hold someone again.

Let me feel your heart beating next to mine.

I need to know.

Will you teach me how to love?

This lonely life is getting so cold.

I can't do it on my own.

There is more to this, I know.

Show me what I can't see.

Teach me how to love.

i wrote this when i was in pain..

walk with my head held high

I bow my head every block or two

wondering what have I done to you.

The pain burns deep within

Is this the feeling of defeat?

Dizziness and blurs,

affecting my vision,

so many decision! decisions,

Love and hate contributed to

my bad attitude,

as the hate manifest in the core of my soul.

My sanity is questionable,

would I ever maintain my mental status?

My performances is flawless

However, I am a fibber,

I am a broken woman

Who seek ratifications

without modifications,

for my broken heart

Being broken hearted is no game

it only bring on shame

and addiction to the end.

which promotes endless pain

ratification and easy modification

i seek for my heart

I am a broken woman.

Almost sound as if you have been hurt/shamed before and afraid to allow yourself to open again while at the same time you're afraid not to because you don't want to be alone. Lots of feelings packed in there!

I hear the pain, hurt, sadness, fear, loneliness. Excellent poem. Yes to the power of venting stressful emotions. There is a process of release and healing too. That's why I write about emotional recovery and miracles. Sending you beacons of purple Light....Gary.

It's good to vent the pain. The challenge is to move beyond on it to a place of balance between mind, body, and spirit. Peace and Light...Gary.
