The blaze of sun
shone down today,
but inside lay only cold.
There are no garuntees in life,
I'd been forewarned and told.

I'm tired of always finishing last,
in races of the heart;
numb is so much better,
so I'll keep love and me apart.

Fairy tales are rubbish,
there's nare a hair of truth;
just a sad little joke on children,
they play on naive youth.

I have to be content with things,
for this chance I cannot take,
and give yet another fellow,
my soul and heart to break.

Sometimes it does get lonesome,
for two arms at the end of the day;
but numb is so much better.

I cry less this way.

Author's Notes:

just something that came out when I woke up after working last night...maybe i should have slept longer??????

I do remember the numb feeling from years ago. Just try to remember that God has a plan for us. He will show you the way.

Fairy tales sometimes have way of coming true...but I'm like you...I've found that sometimes they are just cruel pranks.
Living a fairy tale now :)
Hugs and love you gal!

No truer words were ever penned Barbie. U have just described me to a tee. I learnt to guard my heart, and I would pass up all chances for happiness, if I knew I was going to get hurt. A broken heart mends very slowly, and is never the same again. Very well penned, my friend...Hugz...Jillian

This was me for a long while, I put my heart on a shelf. Then in the past couple of months I met someone and things changed for me. I am still guarded though, that will never change. Great write Barbie, Joe
