Road Construction On A Broken Heart


My heart has the biggest lump
In it causing a speed bump
Slowing down suitors each time
They try crossing the broken line
Warming them it's way to fast
STOP !! Do not even try to pass
Or the hole in my souls street
Will swallow you, it's not complete
And needs to be filled slowly
Repaired a little more daily
Its protected by a shield
Move in with caution, gradually yield
No parking your love this way
It will be towed until the day
This pile up and traffic jam
Wont cause crashes that go wham
There is a no passing zone
And the reason I'm alone
Until I can start construction
I will stay shyly reluctant
To overload my heart again
With crashes that never end
The speed limit on my road
Of love has gradually slowed
To the minimum it will
Learning to climb up the hill
At a pace that I will make
When I take off the love break

    Going headlong into a new relationship can mean disaster for sure so it is good to leave the brake on for awhile..Enjoyed reading your creative work..Thanks for the visit to my page..Sara

    you are so good at relating love to other things. I think the last line you mean love brake? Like put on the brake? I loved that analogy.

    Wow, Robin. This poem is perfect. I feel the same way - speed bumps stand in the way of pursuing love. Wonderfully written! Love, Carolyn
