A Letter to the Heartless

November 21, 2020

FREE WRITING

13

To all who wish to use/manipulate/shatter me:

I'll probably let you.
I'll probably let you, and that scares me.

My heart is so big, and I let everyone in.
Everyone.
That shouldn't be a bad thing, but there is evil in this world.
I wish I could say I was bright enough
to see it coming, but I have a love-first, ask questions later policy.
And when love grows into trust, it's not always earned.

In class one day, we discussed our flaws.
Each person took turns agreeing
that they trust slowly.
And I had to admit that I have arms wide open.

You can read my emotions on my face.
I'd like to believe that you'll handle them with the utmost care,
but I know that there are those
who choose to twist and burn, and

I'll probably let you.
I'll probably let you, and that scares me.
I try to be pretty transparent here (yes, I see the irony), so here are just some honest thoughts. I'm working on this problem, but this piece needed to be written as a vent.

    so glad you were able to write this! sometimes i find myself caught in the middle of being too trusting and too untrusting or too gullible and too incredulous. all the best wishes to you <333

    Why does this sound so much like me?? The best cure for this is to meet so many people who don't love you and will take advantage of you... but that's never a good thing XD. But this is a great piece, as in writing terms! Great job!
    Replying: (Of course I forgot to reply to your first comment XD) Oh, that's cool! I loved living in a small town. Now we live in a pretty big town, but it's not so bad. That other town's biggest accomplishment was definitely the Mexican restaurant XD.
    Awww, really?? That's so sweet! Did they like it?
    Oh, I meant I wouldn't know about because the only places I see those things is on social media XD.
    Ok, I'll definitely check it out! Thanks!
    I think I'd prefer books-to-movies, but the main way I learn about books that turn into movies is watching the movies XD.
    No! You monster XD. I'm NOT going to look it up. But one of my friends said she couldn't finish the movies because one of her favorite characters died... Oh no, I'm so scared. Look what you've done to me!! XD! He will always live on in my heart.

    Awww this gorgeous! It’s hard because it’s not a bad thing to be caring and loving like this, but it’s hard in the world we live in. I love this poem and the firm is great too!
