Broken Chains - Poem by Amera Andersen

No footprint left upon my heart,
nor piercing arrow, nor cupid’s dart.
No lover claims my soul by theft,
upon my heart, no footprint left.

I live within myself alone
and only reap what I have sown.
I keep my feelings on the shelf,
alone I live within myself.

Within my castle tower safe,
a thickened skin that will not chafe.
Untarnished as a winsome flower,
safe within my castle tower.

Walls will rise and walls will fall,
I never wanted this at all.
My loveless life was a disguise,
Walls will fall and walls will rise.

    Enjoyed this much, it shows how you are a strong person, or, you have an uncanny nack for denial.... It would be nice to bottle ourselves up and protect our
    selves from all the evil and heartache in this world... Very good...
