Never knew that you were good,
did not know you at all.
Was unaware that you existed,
no reference I recall.

Flowed all out,
all over the place,
like a flood into people’s life.

At certain times,
Set you without knowledge.
Still distorted or skewed,
determined by others.

Closed up a part of myself,
but continued to have you broken.
Crushed, pulled, torn and stolen.
They snagged and were thieves of my space.

Thoughts were confused.
Closed up again but finally gave you away.
The last time I tried,
destroyed it all.

Heart got crushed,
Yet felt so free, was able to be.
Left you deluge with no recoil at all.

Merciless mistake, locked up most of me.
No longer could love,
No longer could hate,
Exceeding numbness.

Reliving it all,
heart did fall,
waking into my stale state.

Should it be revealed?
Does the heart feel?
When will I no longer ache?

Set you in place,
meaning of space,
no entry into the safe.

It is alright,
keep closed tight,
protect what needs to be.

Only let those in,
who respect,
all others are distant,
at arm’s length.

Confused, misused,
realizing truth,
boundaries you are my friend.

    I SO recognise this… that state of numbness.
    Afraid to both give or recieve anything at all.
    Thank God He sent us Jesus.
    Love you my friend.
