don’t make me
fall in love with you,

I don’t want to remember you,
those Sunday morning
wake-me-up kisses,
or the way your
lost boy eyes always,
always found a way
to find mine.

There are only so many times
I can allow you to slice
through my scar tissue
before I finally

ap art.
The secret:

I’ve been hurt so many times the pain of opening up is almost more than I can bear, so I go through life pretending to everyone, even the ones that love me, that I trust them. It’s not because I don’t want to, I’m just too afraid to.

Wow. This is truly moving even with such a small amount of words!

This piece really resonated with me, what with just breaking up with a boyfriend of mine that I had been with for eight months. It stirred up all those emotions I was repressing, and made me realize that the inevitable is unavoidable and that pain is a bit beautiful, even in its complexity.

Having such a deep connection to your work here, I can only hope that both of us find healing. If the strong emotion your work portrays is truly the way you feel, I hope you feel better.

The impact was huge, the message was timeless, and I enjoyed this more than words could say.

It definitely has an impact even though the number of words is small. I also like the way it acts as something that could either make or break someone's heart. For me, poetry has been a popular thing, and when I find good poetry, it is wonderful to read and imagine. You've certainly put your heart and soul into writing this.

If you were to put some more words in this I think that it will become more popular, but, apart from that, I do like the way this is written and the impact it would have on the reader. Well done.

I know what you mean... :( I've been hurt a lot in the past, and it's made me hesitant to open up or find a significant other... I'm scared to open my heart to someone because I'm afraid of getting hurt again.

This is achingly beautiful in it's truth <3 Reading this also made me realize just how much I feel the same way quite a lot, so I feel for you.
