    Soft Heart...don't Laugh.

    I find it a little embarrassing but its so true about me. I can take a joke and laugh with the best but when you hit me in the heart the joke is over, my heart is soft and its not a pillow to put pins in sorry. It's sometimes a blessing cause that maybe just one of the best...

    I Have a Tender Heart

    Everyone has a tender heart.When it is broken,it takes time for it to heel on its own.My heart is fragile but to get to the good,you have to deal with the bad.

    Hurt

    My heart, it used to be strong, brave, steely...It doesn't get hurt my a few harsh words of criticisms but as time goes, my heart, it was slashed and cut, pierced and pinched, it cracked and shatter. It had become so tender, it hurts easily...

    A Letter To You - I O

    Love is like a fragile leaf of fall, but it still holds an almost uncommon beauty; one which can never be found by purpose alone while hiking through life's forests. But one whose color and ultimate beauty is most pure and meaningful when discovered by accident while tending to...

    Over Emotional

    I try to stay strong, and physically, I am very much so. Emotionally I am not, I am so easily hurt emotionally by the slightest of things. Especially when in a committed relationship, I tend to value my partners opinions to a T, wich usually leads to my feelings being hurt.

    I know it's cool to look at because it's bigger and softer than most you see out there, but my heart is still fragile so I will ask that you not kick it or punch it as has been done aplenty in days gone by. In fact, can you please just set it back down, you're making me nervous...

    For the wounded, the damaged, the broken. There is a dignity and a wisdom that only those who have gone through intense pain, physical or emotional, know.
