Poem: Dodging Love

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Dodging love is a poem about how one protects his heart by building walls. No longer able to feel love, he forgoes it to smile. Enjoying pleasure filled with empty thoughts wanting to feel anything once again.

Dodging Love

Endless tears
no longer drop,
brick walls protect a scarred heart,
silent words remain unspoken
drifting away with each tick of the clock.

Lost in a sea of loneliness
captured by his touch,
basking in this moment
enjoying endless pleasure
filled with empty thoughts.

Forgoing love
to smile once again,
to feel anything
to loosen the grasp
of the four walls
closing in.

The women with the highest walls, have the deepest love.
