Afraid To Love

Left midway on a path to eternal love
Where broken promises lay scattered
I look around for a single ray of hope
Nothing in sight, I am left disheartened

Crying over my scratched and bruised soul
I sit at the same spot, freezing in place
Awaiting that one man to share my pain
But a fear throws me into another space

The journey so far has been painful enough
I am devoid of courage to take another blow
There is a void where once his love resided
Now am afraid to love or let my love flow…

    A bitter experience often shakes one’s faith in love but wisdom lies in being hopeful and in giving love another chance.
