Fragile Heart

Facets, only fragments of me I will let you see,
sad remnants of my life, delicate and broken I keep locked inside; with
anguish and sad memories of lost love-  oh I,
still lament for my true love under the cold earth.
And inside me there is a heart of porcelain like glass- so don't come all,
la-di-da and expect me to just fall in love with you, so easily; 
because I fear, fear, and dread losing my heart again-

Yet, heartbroken and vulnerable- I stand before you with my,
deep emotions swirling and twirling within my ailing eggshell soul;
you see, running from love is what I do-  and I am good at it
but I am ready to love a kindred spirit like you, so please;
take this tattered soul and heal it, and take this shattered heart, 
and hold me in your strong arms and just love me-

They have been warned now. All they have to do is read this part: "there is a heart of porcelain like glass- so don't come all, la-di-da and expect me to just fall in love with you, so easily; " Adorable!

You open up like a flower in this and show how fragile you are. Very brave. Skillful too.The essence of fine poetry. Authentic. But on a lighter note - I don't think I've ever seen "la-di-da" ever, ever written before. (Certainly not in a poem). Sure, heard it lots but never written. Congrats, like Shakespeare you've added a phrase to the language. Just sayin'.
