Bulletproofing my heart.

Updated on October 16, 2011

My bulletproof heart,

once freely accessible,

as it carelessly ventures into strenuous

years of deception,

Can it be fixed?

After a seven years itch?

Foolish heart, silly pride,

am I an unforgiving bride?

As you uttered heartless words,

from those lips I once adored

you became the sharp sword

who pierce deep into the core of my heart,

a natural ability to deception leave a mark

my husband.

My bulletproof heart,

is now protected, from all invaders,

who once cast a shadow,

of vague empty feelings

around my guarded healing heart,.

A tragedy so unacceptable,

it is unforgivable

as you wondered what is coming next

from your warm cuddle nest of martial bliss,

as you continued your infidelity,

You have not passed the test.

Because you broke my heart

I must forgive and forget

and ratify truce and let love in.

Else my heart would be black and blue forever,

I cannot let you win,

not this time,

This heart is mine

      Yes ma'am she was and is dearly missed! Wise woman was planting messages in my head for later - messages I didn't understand and when I would say what do you mean?? She would say you'll figure it out when you need to. She was right!

      I really love the depth of your poetry! My grandma always used to tell me that men are like trolleys - there is always another one waiting on every corner! Haha I would remind her - we use busses here now:-)

      Hello Darknlovely. I hope your heart isn't totally inaccessible.

      Your writing is so powerful, even though the circumstances are so awful, but in my short time here, the hubs have proven just how amazing people can be when you open your heart up.

      Anyway, don't give up on love - not all men are monsters...although there are few like me ;)

      Why punish love? love the title,great titles, however,

      that pain is nothing to compared with childbirth,

      at least in childbirth, in the end welook into out down our babies,eyes and smile, and that pain vanishes, but when someone broke your heart,we look into the eyes of the beasts who hurt us.. some of us can get over that pain and, some goes deep into depression, so Micky Dee darknlovely is bulletproofing her heart.(:)

      Beautiful Darknlovely. I doubt that I can ever find love - again (?). - Did I ever know love? I remain befuddled at the "punishment" one must endure for merely loving. That's got to be a poem right there- you or I, or millions could write.

      "Why punish Love?", "No Good Deed or Selfless Love Should Go Unpunished", "The Fleeting Passion of Love". The broken heart breaks the spirit, the soul.

      Windsweptplains, thank you for commenting,

      a broken heart is just like anything else that is broken

      it have to be protected to avoided another mishap.
