Once Broken; Twice Shy

by Trina Williams-Emigh

Wonder who spoke first
My heart
Or my mind

Didnít matter
Cause you were running out of time

Already caught
In my web of deceitful lies

I told you, you meant nothing
And hid the truth behind my eyes

Now flowers wilt
Where once they grew pretty
My heart is dirt
My mind is gritty

Iím protected from allowing you in

For pain is an armor I dress in
Everyday
It shields the heart
And keeps the truth away

No other love
No heartbreak
I always say
