The Heart of A Lonely Girl

By Natika Conway

A heart so filled with love,
has been broken and abused.
This little girl has not yet learned,
To love all is to be hurt by all.

She slowly learns, but
to know does not help.
As she slowly lets another in,
with words of love and forgiveness.

She hopes and hopes that
he will not hurt her.
But like the rest he lies.
She soon finds these lies and to her
remorse there goes another piece.

Fresh and bleeding she crawls
on hands and knees.
Till she bleeds and no more
can she go.

As the pieces fall away
She learns not to give
her heart away.

Now as she meets another,
She keeps it all inside,
until the day he says
'Marry Me'
