If My Heart Could Talk.

What is there to be afraid of?

I have layers of barbed wire fences around me.

Don't be afraid.

No one can get it.

No one can reach past our defenses without getting scratched.

The signs say,



"Do Not Enter"

No one can see through the traps and tricks.

No one knows that we don't want to push them away.

We want some one who isn’t afraid.

We want someone who doesn’t mind the scratches

We want someone who will break the rules, ignore the signs

We want some one gentle

Someone who won’t add another layer of fear and barbed wire.
