Tough Love True To Heart - Poem by Rik Bertrand

I put all my faith in the love that we shared,
I dared, only to find out that you never cared.
My love crossed over and to the point of no return,
I was burned, my heart was torn apart, lesson learned.

I have wrapped my emotions up, locked them up tight,
If anyone wants my love, they will have a major fight.
There will be no more tragic mistakes that cut my heart,
There will be no part time love affairs that I will take part.
I am true to a new life's start…

You were the target of all my true devotions,
I had you wired and tapped to color all my emotions.
You left me without a word; you are a coward of a man,
But you have taught me to be vigilant of love on demand.

Just for all of you to know,

I have wrapped my emotions up, locked them up tight,
If anyone wants my love, they will have a major fight.
There will be no more tragic mistakes that cut into my heart,
There will be no part time love affairs that I will take part.
I am true to a new life's start…

I have learned through the lessons of love and heart lost,
That my soul must stay strong and must heal at all cost.
Your damaged character and your torrid heartless love,
Has been noted by the angels that fly above….

Be this known to all that hear my call….

I have wrapped my emotions up, locked them up tight,
If anyone wants my love, they will have a major fight.
There will be no more tragic mistakes that cut my heart,
There will be no part time love affairs that I will take part.
I am true to a new life's start…

Freedom has become me as I have learned from the bad,
And although at first I was lonely, I was never really sad.
For I realized that true love, come only once to your heart
And all the rest are mistakes that you must gently abort.

And to do this with patience and true caring in mind

I have wrapped my emotions up, locked them up tight,
If anyone wants my love, they will have a major fight.
There will be no more tragic mistakes that cut my heart,
There will be no part time love affairs that I will take part.
I am true to a new life's start…
