Those Shattered Dreams
Shattered dreams of mine I have fused back together,
refusing to believe that love again I shouldn't endeavour.
Iknow in my heart that one of these days I will,
give my cup once more and wait anxiously for it to fill.
Instead of retaining it to my chest in the belief I don't deserve,
or doing my utmost this emotion to swerve.
It won't be so incomprehendable when I hear those words of three,
as I'll know it's okay to let someone love me.
I won't back away from arms that reach out,
as in my heart there'll be no doubt.
For it will be banished just like my pain,
denying me the right to love unbinding me from its chain.
Free to love and unveil what I'm about,
I'll promise not to run when they scream and shout.
Confrontation doesn't have to be something I still fear,
as I open my arms and hold them near.
Wearing my heart on my sleeve but engaging my mind,
feeling blessed by the notion of my heart being entwined.
Still looking out for me who is the most precious,
praying they'll understand that I hid behind my pain by being facetious.
In the back of my mind these thoughts I place,
but every so often they manage to resurface.
Exhaling as they leave me tattered and ripped at the seams,
but I'll never give up believing in THOSE SHATTERED DREAMS!!!
