Protection from Love

Updated on October 30, 2011

I just lost my balance

I had my feet firmly planted on stone

I just lost my sense of direction

Can't seem to find my way home

A home safe and protected

from intruders and guests alike

I placed a mote filled with dangerous creatures

to keep out all that desire

Desire to love me and hurt me

Desire to make me their own

I thought I had impenetrable security

until i sensed I wasn't alone

I'm standing with my weapons

as your shadow gets closer to me

I fire shot upon shot

but you don't seem to bleed

You take the shots like a hero

determined to save the day

No matter how I defend my home

I can't seem to run you away

You made it to my room

I attempt to lock the door

I lay in the corner in the fetal position

I just can't take anymore

you knock with such sweetness

and whisper let me inside

I rock myself to sleep in the corner

Hoping that if I hide

Hide myself long enough

you will eventually leave

But when I awake I'm in your arms

and you tell me you're in love with me

      You're on your way, girl! Spread your wings and fly and don't let anyone clip them! You are awesome! Know that - always. Those who try to make you think less of yourself are weak, insecure and want to bring you down to their level. Love yourself enough to never let it happen again! There's a difference between being lonely and being alone..... Be alone with yourself for a while and realize the beautiful being you are.

      Wow! Sounds like you've had a bad boy or two in your life also! Close the door and don't let anyone in until you're ready to know good guys can be fun, too. I'm talking from experience. It's not easy to do, but necessary for your soul to survive. Sometimes it's better to be alone than to be with someone who doesn't feed your soul! Thanx for baring your soul to us. That, too, isn't easy!
