Love sublime

 He pushed all the right buttons
To gain access to her heart
And then he broke it
Ripping the threads of love apart
Leaving  her in tears when he split

She buttoned up her broken heart
And refused to let anyone in
Lest  the  tender thoughts she might impart
Cause her heart to be broken once  again

The emotional buttons of her heart loosened  over  time
Her heart  began  to trust and  love again
Bringing her sunshine instead of rain
Joy instead of pain
As she found a love sublime

    Loving this one, Joseph. Truth speaks! Sometimes the pain causes you to shut your heart. So nice to see you have a sensitive side... something women appreciate. Great job! Always, Annalise

    You describe the cycle so perfectly Joseph; we break, we ache and then we make it happen again. Creatures of habit we are! :)
