It's no wonder I cannot love

It's no wonder that I cannot love,
I've not been loved myself
And in the hour of misery
No one thought or cared for me.

I sit here, tearful
Briny-eyed... How long I've been;
Nought but a chamber...repository for my heart
Which to this day lies empty and untouched.

No wonder why I cannot care
You see, I lack the heart to spare...
One that grows by being loved,
It's no longer than the tear of a dove.

    This is an interesting poem, since "To love is to be loved, and to be loved is loving." I like your thoughts on the subject. This piece is very expressive. Great job! ~Joseph

    Unfortunately, this is true for way too many. Nice use of imagery to forward your message. I like the closing line. Your poem is too good not to have a better title. Instead of repeating the first line, try for one or two words that capture the essence of what you are trying to say. Best wishes with this one. Thank you for your kind words regarding my poem. Karen
