About the Poem
This poem was written after a relationship had ended. Sometimes after being hurt by someone we loved, it is easier to keep our heart locked away to protect it from being hurt again. At these times two words describe us best...we are running scared. Yet we find, if that person needs a friend, no matter the pain they have caused us...we will be there for them.

|It's been so long since I trusted anyone
do I want to take the chance;
To let you once again see me for who I am
no rhythm, no rhyme, no dance?
Can I trust you with my heart
will it be safe in your care;
Or will you crush it and abuse it
simply pretending it's not there?
Sometimes it seems it is easier
to keep my inner self locked away;
Just to do the things that life demands
fulfilling duties every day.
Inside each of us is a dream
to reach for that unattainable star;
Yet as we mature, life takes new turns
and we accept things as they are.
Yet one thing is for certain
always know this is true;
If you ever need to know someone cares
I will always be here for you.
