Teach me How to Love

Updated on July 10, 2014

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.

      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.

      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.

      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 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.
