Missing Pieces

Everytime I open up
Everytime I trust
I get hurt
My heart went from whole
To half
To pieces
Each person I learned to trust leaves
And with them goes a part of me
I have nearly no heart
I can't trust I can't be open
I opened my heart one last time
In hopes to not get hurt
I kept to myself
Trying not to attach
So I don't lose what's left of my heart
My fear is to get hurt
To trust an be turned away
To open up an be shut out
Nightmare came reality
I opened to much
I attached so close
I trusted with my life
The emptiness was filled
Now I'm pushed away
You said you would be here
Your not like the rest
You'll always be here
I feel dead
Every part shattered
I gave you all I had
And once again got hurt
I learn to love
I learned to care
I even learned to try
Not to give up
I can't open again
This was the end
The final straw
What was my heart is gone
Nothing but a black hole now
Just a bunch of missing pieces

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
