Love no More

Why must it be
that the ones I connect with
the ones who see beneath
to the woman that I am
why do they always flee?
What is it about me?
My intelligence?
My creativity?
The fact that I do not require saving?
What is it that makes it so
that these men would rather run
than stay?
Once my I shutter my heart
once more I will sear my soul
once more I shall retreat
as love is not a factor any more.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
