Can’t seem to close it

These slowed reverb songs

torment me with this space

that lies between you and me.

Didn’t think it was possible

for me to open my heart again,

but to you, I just can’t seem to close it.

Moments I crave for,

your presence I seek for,

your smile I’m breathless for.

P.S.-

    Like they say, “A heart must first be broken in order to be opened”. Once a heart is opened, it allows love to come in and it’s a beautiful thing for the person it’s allowing to accept. The giver must have a kindred soul, a beautiful soul and that heart has so much to give. This poem is about a heart like that and a giver of that potential, and not being able to close a heart isn’t a bad thing because it just means one is always open to new beginnings. This is a beautiful poem lovely♥️♥️. Let your heart be your guide and on another note….I know you don’t like these kind of things but feelings come into play😉. Happy Birthday lovely, may your wishes come true♥️♥️🌹

    This poem is so wonderful! You perfectly captured the beginning of a new love, when you thought that you could never have such feelings for a person again, because the last one may have hurt you. I think opening your heart again is always linked to risks, especially because we make ourselves vulnerable again. But if it’s the right one, taking risks will be worth it

  15. I can only hope to one day love someone as deeply as this. To go from – never thinking that their heart would open again to now not being able to close it is an amazing leap, whoever they are dating must be an incredible person.
