2D Life

Her heart is stone cold she cannot be loved
A wall a defence she's built years to protect
Raw emotion nor attraction ever expressed
Heart closed to letting inside her chest

This wall has withstood the test of time
But for what benefit? to strengthen mind?
A saviour from feelings she wants to deny
Not ever experience what life is like to know

Perfect world in her eyes, no tears to be felt
All thoughts simply a matter of black and white
No colour, no sunshine, no rainbow or smile
Just a two dimensional life, day and night

The heart unloved is surrounded by steel
Long supressed emotions no longer real
Stripped and seperated mind and heart
How long can one sustain until falling apart

This world sealed for her until death thy part

    Shaz, I know this feeling very well. It is a little ironic, my pen name is "Stoic" and what you so eloquently describe is essentially the Stoic philosophy of controlling emotions and remaining detached.... It can make for a very controllable and predictable life albeit an often cold and lonely one. I think your writing is stunning. -Stephen

    Love the stone cold heart, you describe it well. A shame people choose to be this way either from life experiences or genetics.

    I have so many poems that I wrote in my native language with very similar theme. One always sees genius in others if the genius aligns with ones own thoughts I guess :) And I do like this poem :)
