Ruby Tuesday 2~Jan 31, 2012 - My Heart

~~~





~

Fantasy

I put my feelings on the line.
I put my heart out, in plain view.
I lavished love, so willingly...
the only way I knew.


Defenses left along the way.
In shattered heaps they’re lying, still.
And what was me 
- my heart , my soul -
was there for you to fill.

I put my all, there on the line.
My past I left, without a care.
Mountains crossed and bridges 
burned...
all on a hope and prayer.

That hope and prayer are flimsy now.
The love I nurtured, has been stilled.
The dream was mine - a fantasy -
  not meant to be fulfilled.

I love your photo and your poem. I also love the Mark Twain quote on your sidebar. I love lace curtains.

The heart, the six-paned window, the lace - so romantic looking Junie!
And the poem - wow - I love it!
