Next Time


A bitter heart burns,

my stomach churns with every beat…

A fresh new start is just what this- bitter, broken heart needs.

A fear of becoming just like my mother…

A thought alone that makes my soul shutter…


How does one begin again?

When once love was so sweet-

Took my very breath away and knocked me off my feet?

How can a new love compare to this-once passionate, unbelievable state of bliss?

It is too scary to begin again-for now I need to be alone…

Being cautious that my heart and soul do not turn to stone…

I will take some time

Enjoy life for me

Get re-grounded

Put the rug back under my feet…

Next time- I will be more careful and try not to love so hard-so that my heart does not end up with such a painful permanent scar.

I will not end up like my mother-with a heart destroyed and turned to solid stone, afraid to love again-afraid of the unknown.

Next time will be different-if anything I will hold on to this mantra alone… and take my time-begin as friends and let love bloom slow.

Then maybe next time he wont run when he realizes how big his heart has grown.
