    He Walked Away With My Heart...

    For almost 5 years I had a wall around me not allowing anyone to get close to me. I was protecting myself from disappointment, heartache and pain. I had been through 2 very abusive relationships...1 with my ex husband and the other with my daughters father. I thought I needed...

    And I Wish You Would, Too

    I let you in because I trust you. I got to know you, and I chose to trust you and to let you into my life, and into my mind. I chose to let you see the things I can't show anyone else. The things that have gotten me hurt when I showed them to someone else before. It took me some...
