Humpty Dumpty Heart…

Recently, for some reason I have yet to discover, poetry seems to be everywhere… This one popped into my head this morning while lying in bed… “inspired thought” ?Humpty Dumpty Heart

This heart has been guarded like Humpty Dumpty,

Pieces now remain.

Held together by walls and doors,

It heals. It beats.

And so it loves.

He touches each wall

He knocks at every door…

I’m left curious and cautious,

Come you to shatter Humpty again?

Or make you this heart your treasure forever?

    Love the poem!! Well done πŸ™‚
    A prisoner in your own heart??
    Be free… To love and lose is better than not to love at all… Break down the walls and be courageous… nothing ventured, nothing gained! By keeping the walls up you are missing out on sooo many possibilities…..

      Thanks! πŸ˜€
      Yeah! Too true! Think I am slowly getting over this fear of being heart broken again… Its like Ive known for ages that logically even with pain comes growth and I should let the walls tumble… guess I’m just beginning to imbibe it? Is that the right word?!
