I have a shield covering my heart. I decided to cover this warm, soft heart with cold metal. It’s not that I don’t want you here; it’s that my heart can’t take anymore. Many think that you can easily be healed by the next. I remember what it felt like to have space in a place that was once filled with love, but I know this is not true. The emptiness that sat still in my chest echoed the sounds of hurt. So for now my heart sits warm again but covered with a metal shield.
Has anyone ever felt this way? You feel warm inside, but your cover it to keep it safe from cold.
