Daily Prompt: Sleeve


I once wore my heart

on my sleeve

And people stared at me

and asked me to leave


I desired the need

to be strong

So friends and family

would not think

I was wrong


I opened my heart

and got burnt

Never again

it’s a lesson learnt


Free as a bird

I will stay

Until love comes along

another day…lol

  1. I loved this one Mairi. It was really an insightful post. To be true I was able to relate with your words dear friend. You have a gift โœจ. Your words heal peopleโ€™s mind and give them hope and strength. Atleast I felt that way ๐Ÿ˜Š. Thank you again so much and I hope you will keep writing as always. Much hugs to you Mairi ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•.
