Now

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Forever a ‘spot’ withdrawn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.
