Protecting Myself From You

**First poem I've written in a while, so it may be a little rusty.**

Protecting Myself From You

Ive boxed up all emotions
To be sheltered is the goal
Steel walls Ive built around me
To defend my beaten soul

My heart must be protected
From the road that lies ahead
My eyes must be prepared to see
The image that I dread

For if its unexpected
Then I wont know what to do
The tears Ive hidden will reveal
As I look up at you...

So these memoirs Ill erase
With everything we were
That way it might not hurt so much...
To see you loving her

    Wow I have to say I know exactly how you feel with this one. I am going through the same thing. It is absoultly amazing at how you seem to be able to catch emotion in every single stanza. Some people write to write but you write to show emotion. Which is indeed felt within all of your poems. :-)

    You came very highly recommended for me to check out and i have to say, i'm impressed. this was a beautifully written piece. the imagery, emotion and depth, content, concept and flow all came together to create a truly beautiful read. filled with suci melancholy and hopelessness yes. but a beautiful piece of art nontheless.
