Starting Over

How do you start over
when you’ve fallen
off the cliff of love
and broken every bone
in your heart

And one day
you meet someone new
and there is a stirring
maybe this time

But then there’s the feeling
of being wrapped in flame
skin burnt
touch hurts
and you back away
not another time
not ready

And the new person
keeps popping up
in your mind
calling for you
to try again
to love again

But the dark void
swallows you up
and you close your mind
before you hit the ground

The ability to love
is very resilient
no matter how many times
you remember the hurts
and revisit the scars
she keeps coming back
slipping softly into your dreams

Maybe tomorrow
life starts again.

Again, you've written something that goes straight to my heart.

Thank you.
A tough time...tenatively poking my head out of the shell.Imagine a turtle wearing a crash helmet...
