The heart is a fragile thing

Location

 

I always thought I was invincible

My heart  a soft core in a shining outer exterior of steel

I thought I couldn't be affected by the dramas and complex problems of todays youth

I separated myself from their follies

I considered myself superior

Then once upon a time a girl came

She acted very much like she liked me

Me and her became the best of friends, our souls and minds linked

We felt like we knew each other very well, almost as if we were the same exact person

On the urging of my friends one day I popped her the big question

I wanted to make our synchronization official

She said yes, and then a few days later rectified her mistake

She changed her mind, changed her thoughts of me

I went from good friend with potential of soul mate, to awkward acquaintance

I always thought i was invincible

My heart a soft core in a shining outer exterior of steel

I thought i couldn't be affected by the dramas and complex problems of todays youth

I separated myself from their follies

I consider myself superior

Then once upon a time a girl came, and she reduced my heart to a pound of rubble

I eventually recovered, what doesn't kill me only makes me stronger

And i became good friends with her again, though that wall of pain still stopped me from getting too close

Later on there was another

Throwing me subtle hints and gestures

All these hints compiled together sent a huge glaring message of love my way

I decided to walk to the edge and take a chance

I asked her out

I got a yes

I had finally succeeded

Only to learn from my friend and confident that it was all a lie

My perfect world came tumbling down around me, as did my heart

She was playing games, and playing me like an instrument

I sunk deep into a pit of depression

I always thought i was invincible

My heart a soft core in a shining outer exterior of steel

I thought i couldn't be affected by the dramas and complex problems of todays youth

I separated myself from their follies

I consider myself superior

Then once upon a time a girl came, and she reduced my heart to a steaming pile of molten dreams

For a while i was weighed down by a sad and broke ego but i got over it

It was then that I learned the heart is a fragile thing

But you must not let a broken heart barricade you from a full life

Love is a strange and harsh mistress, but there are more thing to life than love

Happiness, can be achieved by loving yourself

Your heart may not be made of steel but your self esteem should be

Brush of all the negativity and anger and open your eyes to a beautiful and full world

I always thought I was invincible

My heart a soft core in a shining outer exterior of steel

I thought i couldn't be affected by the dramas and complex problems of todays youth

I separated myself from their follies

I considered myself superior

But now i realize i am not

I am special in my own way, but I am still a teenager getting used to a strange strange world

And like almost every other teengaer I have a fragile heart

But i must learn how to control  it, and love myself.

Instead of letting my emotions cloud my judgement I must let them out

And it is to let my emotions flow out from my body onto paper

It is to let mey trapped emotions out, so I can takee a a breather

It is to let me lungs fill in with the sweet air, unburdened by a heavy heartIt is becuase of all these thing that I write

I really enjoyed the repetition to offered, and the length was very good. I would recommend, however, splitting it up a bit more, so there will be multiple stanzas so the piece doesn't seem to daunting and your growth within the poem stands out even more. Thank you so much for sending this in.
