Hardened Heart

Hardened Heart

 

Looking at the world through rose-tinted
glasses she thinks time and
Life are forever innocent
And beautiful.
A few years later, walking along her road
Her gaze is a little clearer,
She sees the world afraid
Tears in her eyes.
A bit older now she’s running down the road
She can’t let them catch her
She stumbles, falls, beaten.
The tears flow freely.
Strutting through her time, ignoring all she
Sees Life’s seemingly sweet
No longer does she worry, she
Just plays the game.
Her road is ending she can’t seem to recall
A single thing of worth
No moment of pure happiness. Lost years bring
lost tears. She dies crying.

Eyes

I see your puppy dog eyes,
They are buried
In my vision.
No one can take that away.
Your smile which used to bring me so much
Joy is still embedded in my mind,
Heart,
And soul.
I twisted your dreads only to
Realize that I had no skills whatsoever to
Even attempt to do that.
But you allowed me too.
Your teeth, your tummy, and your feet.
Please, the memories are still vivid.
No one can change those memories.
They are forever a part of me.
The love that I once felt could never be replaced,
Years later finding out that it never could.
We bought so much pain into each other’s life.
I’m sad for the choices that I made.
I wish I knew what I had back then.
I’m sorry for ever causing you any pain and I hope the
feeling is mutual.
You were an angel for me at times.
I couldn’t fully return that for you because I didn’t know how.
