no more tears

I can paint my nails
Even colour my eyes,
but for my empty heart
There is no disguise.

it has no shelter
it's in a million bits,
it holds an empty place
in which nothing fits.

no glue or tape,
can make it fix
I'm beginning to think,
it'll always be like this.

for each time it heals
someone else comes along,
takes me for a fool
and proves my strength wrong.

why am i so foolish?
i hear myself ask in pain,
then sternly my heart replies,
"it wont be happening again."

for I'm not doing this,
i don't want to feel this low again,
No one is ever getting close enough
to use me as a toy in their game.

Vicki Wroe, 22.
