Door to My Heart

By
I sat here waiting for you by this window sill
I’ve sat there so long it’s like time is standing still
As darkness falls upon the loveless pane
I think to myself how did I fall for his again
When I was little every lie you told me was the same
Now to think that I believed you just puts me to shame
I think about other days that I’ve sat here
Waiting; thinking that you must be near
You tell your friends you love me and that you’re a lucky man
But why don’t you treat me like that is what I don’t understand
I got up from the sill as reality sank in
So I guess what I’m trying to say is this is the end
To protect my heart I covered it with a door
Because I can’t take your continuous heartbreak anymore
Don’t come knockin don’t even bother
Cause your little girl’s all grown up and she’ll miss you

zandra, my heart aches for you when i read this poem. it correctly portrays the pain you have gone through. but very well written.
