Never again.

I let you in

Like a fool.

I forgot the taste

Of your poison.

I drank it down.

My heart in the line

Of fire.

At this distance

I thought, safe.

Not so.

My heart should

Listen to my head.

You’re assaults still hurt.

Never again.

  1. Oooh, I rather lost myself in that poem. I think all of us has those feelings at one point or another. Well done, Penny!


  2. “My heart should listen to my head…” but it doesn’t always and that’s when we get hurt.


  3. This is a very moving poem, Penny. I loved it.
