Ripe For Heartbreak And Fresh To Hurt

Rating: 4.5
So bare and naked lay my emotions.
Exposed and out in the open,
For you to abuse if you decided...
That to me you would do.

So ripe for heartbreak and fresh to hurt.
I've rehearsed my reaction,
If you begin to treat my affections...
As if they meant nothing but worthless dirt.

Agonized with visions of passionless love.
And awakening to feel touches of frozen pieces,
Left to never thaw.
I don't want us to experience this.
And I do not wish an attraction for it.

So bare and naked lay my emotions.
Exposed and out in the open,
For you to abuse if you decided...
That to me you would do.

So ripe for heartbreak and fresh to hurt.
I've rehearsed my reaction,
If you begin to treat my affections...
As if they meant nothing but worthless dirt.

And yes,
I confess...
I have fears to be near and held close,
By love.
Since being crushed by it,
Has left me to spin in doubt and disbelieve.
Lawrence S. Pertillar
