Make My Heart Listen - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Hearts of stone, strengthened by heartbreak
and pain of lost love, not wanting to be hurt

Diving into depths of emotion, feelings sting-
ing with the suffering gone through, making
them numb so they can no longer be felt.

Not wanting anything to do with love or caring,
not even speaking the words, others trying to
make my heart listen to what they're saying.

Knowing that if love should touch me again and
be let in, the open wound of this heart would
again be exposed.

Not ever wanting to go through that pain again,
preferring to be alone and isolated where nothing
can touch or hurt me again.
