The Things I love…continues

I love laughter. My smart-ass wit and the wit of others that can match me, make me laugh, or better, someone who has an even worse wicked sense of humor than mine.

I’m know longer the same

Now

Lines have been drawn

Boundaries and guards firmly in place

 

Now

I know better

No leaping, no risking all

 

The pain isn’t worth it

The consequences to steep

Recovery takes too long

 

Now

I think

Am reserved

 

There will always be a part

Protected

 

Now

I will always hold back

 

Keep myself in check

Marker in the ground

Places I will not allow myself to go

Forever a ‘spot’ withdrawn

 

Now

 

Maybe someday, someone will change that

Maybe someday…

 

But for now….

I place my heart in a locked box

Wrapped ever so prettily

The tag is blank

The key is secret

 

For how long?

I don’t know

Forever maybe

 

Or maybe…

just…

for…

now.
