December 25, 2009 - Beauty Awakening

Beauty Awakening

A broken heart
Was all she had to give
So afraid to laugh and live
No more tears did she wish to cry
So she numbed her soul
And told love goodbye

Her world was shattered
With grief and pain
Her spirit no longer could maintain
She hid her heart and made it cold
Alone was how she would grow old

So long had this spirit been asleep
A passionate fire
pushed way down deep
Shining eyes and a gentle smile
They were there all the while

In her sleep she wished to remain
Alone and cold in her pain
Then another heart
With beauty deep
Brought great love
And woke her from her sleep

Beauty is awakened
Love does exist
This beautiful heart
She could not resist

-Neva Flores 2009

Wow! I can so-o-o relate to the first part of this poem! You couldn't have stated my feelings better!
Unfortunately, I'm still not ready to open up to love.

Love is so hard, and sometimes I am just so happy not to be involved.

But then again, there is an emptiness that cannot be filled when you are alone

I would guess that it depends what side of the bed I wake up on. When things are going well it's hard to understand the depths of despair, but in those times when times are tough I soooo wish I didn''t have to deal with anyone else. Neva you hit it on the head again.
