I built walls of self-containment.
Imprisoned myself within a cage.
Years of fury and hostility,
until your love ended my rage.

I was left cold and alone.
Unwanted, and consumed by self-hate.
Years of neglect and abuse,
until your heart unlocked my gate.

I still fight the demons inside,
but my re-born spirit has strength anew.
Years of bruises and scars,
are finally healing, because of you.

Dedicated to my loving husband

Very Emotional
Short and right to the point...
"But I can identify with what you once went through, because I went through that years ago, like you, until someone tore down the walls to get to my heart."
"Then, God sent me through a healing process." I enjoyed the read.

Wonderful Men
Wonderful men who are willing to break down the walls and walk into our hearts. I have someone like that in my life, and all I can say is, your poetry hits me right in the heart. You said you wanted to write a novel...if you ever do...please let me know!!! This was very moving...brought back a load of memories.
