Bulletproof Heart - Poem by William F Glennon

Will I open my heart and leave you guessing?
Will the vulnerability leave me defenseless?

Do I want people to see behind this mask I wear?
Will they be taken aback or will they just not care?

I look into this cracked mirror and see a distorted face.
A face that bears the scars of love, life and death.
A heart not truly embraced.

The weight of this shield has me weak and in pain.
Not knowing if I can ever trust myself to trust again.

    So much truth in this and the honesty is beautiful! Pain makes us all cautious and guarded but Love can knock again. (Report) Reply
