Oh, the impossible.

An image, an expectation, a foolish piece of hope
will only drag you further down.
Just to make things more complicated,
let us hide the weaknesses of faith and love and only
tell the positives.
For no emotions, no feelings, no reliance
is a simpler way of man.
Why must we all give in to our
hearts and show our ability to be vulnerable?
Why must we give ourselves up,
and let ourselves open within?
Finally, why do we all
take one another for granted?
We have given you our hearts, our souls.
We have let ourselves feel vulnerable,
a feeling which we do not prefer to feel.
Don't give yourself up,
because in the long run,
opening yourself will most likely
end with closing tighter.
So therefore, let's
create a wall.
Let us not love, let us not trust.
Let us not hurt.

I really like this piece. I have trust issues of my own, and this accurately displays why. You are a good poet.

I agree that it is a nice piece, but I completely disagree with your advice to be more positive. This is about the feeling of crushed hopes, not about hope; if we did not know the feeling of hurt, we would not appreciate the value of happiness. Beautiful poem, xoxokacie
