Random Poem:

Broken Beginning

Opening your heart to someone only to have your heart pushed deep down into the soles of your feet, crushing the veins that flow purely with love due to scared and emotional things you've encountered.
All you want to do is to provide a sense of happiness and comfortability for a person and they knock it away or look the other way completely.  Apologies become your enemies and you decide to  let  feelings you possess die.
Calling unto the one above for guidance adn understanding of self flaws and trauma, you fall into a world of faults and negativity. One single opportunity thrown to the dogs and ate to pieces, never to be recovered.
You stray to start a new journey only to repeat the same techniques did unto thee, as an individual dismay occurs in your mind frame you feel empty and weak, drained of emotions and functions of love.
So therefore falls the Broken Beginning of a neverending cycle of defeat of self happiness with a campanion who lets their guard down to seek you out from your hidden flaw traits. Will the cycle be unbroken or destroyed, only you can be the decoy.
