"Don't Ask"

"Don't Ask"

A Poem by Valentine

 

  "Don't Ask!"
 
You can ask,
But I cannot give,
The part of me
You need to live.
I gave it once...
Long ago;
Pain returned,
That I know.
All I can offer.
Is today;
Yet pain may come
Anyway.
My heart is not
Free to give;
Ask for another
Reason to live.
My heart would only
Bring you pain;
In its presence...
Love would be slain.
Please do not ask...
I cannot give
All of my heart...
That you might live.
my heart died...long ago;
Why hearts beat, I do not know?

The only person who should be given a whole heart is Jesus otherwise humans however good they are will somehow cause us pain when we fully give them our hearts. I have learnt better and i know better.

Once bitten never really covers it, does it? We get bit, and bit and bit again, until there is nothing left to give and we become the mask that we have seen so many times in others, but understand for the first time. Maybe a little play from fate, having this one at the top of my reading list this morning :)
Thanks for sharing Kathie.

This is truly magik and stuck a cord on a deep level, and had brought up all the memories of why I have grown so cold and why I am so reluctant to offer my heart anymore. More damage may be done...not to myself, but to others.

Yes that could be true, but what if you will be missing the opportunity of the right person? Kathie

I still stay open, but much guarded indeed.
There is definitely an underlying sadness to this piece that speaks to the soul. Good write.
