Defected, A Poetic Excerpt from my book, Poetic Reflections: A Compilation of Poems (2009)

My heart is defected.

Defected from all the all the heartaches,

the drama, the mind games.

My mind is defected from lies I have

been told.

My soul is defected from the empty,

long drawn out promises and confessions

of love- endless love,

tales of love, adornment, and

a fantasy

 love affair.

My emotional state is so unbalanced,

so fearful of hurt that I no longer

wish to love wholeheartedly.

I no longer wish to

love emotionally.

 

I was hurt so badly by the love of my life,

the one I gave my heart to,

even when I shouldn’t have because

 of the certain circumstances,

yet I took a chance

and fell.

However, I gave in to the confessions of love.

I gave in to the “I love you’s”.

I gave in to the “I miss you’s”.

I was a victim of believing that I

was truly adored.

 

When in reality, I don’t know what was

really going on. I just know the “I love you’s”

and the “I miss you’s” stopped. The good times

and tender moments ceased.

Everything stopped as if frozen in time.

When everything stopped,

I was left in love with a person

 that no longer exists and defected

for life.
