Fearful of love.

For the heart only beats so long

as it feels warmth 


Now she is ice.

He was the storm that blew her away

and swept her off her feet 


Gravity isn’t as kind.

Fallen, bruised and scared

she did not heal quickly 


Because her heart did not beat

as it once did

when she was in love.
