Fragile Heart
Author: Everett


A Fragile Heart bleeds through its surface.
The same fragile heart that gets broken.
More often broken by the ones we Love.
Or by the ones we thought we Loved.
The shattered peices of a broken heart
will bury thier way into our soul.
They are reminders of broken trust.
Its hard to trust the right people.
So many times we let others
hold our fragile heart and soul in thier clumsy hands.
Words like "care" "love" and "miss" mislead us from the truth
that they have already dropped our heart.
It falls to the ground and breaks into so many peices
that we must somehow put back together.
Its a lonely puzzle that will, in time, be finished.
Moving on is tough, it will always be rough.
Soon you will find that inside every one of us is strength.
I know......because i found it today.

I LOVE the line "so many times we allow others to hold our heart and soul in their clumsy hands...."
Way to personify wrecklessness in relationships.
Did I say wow?
