The heart is yours and yours alone, don’t rent it out just like that,
There will be times you’ll regret it, but don’t ever get shut.
She asked me to keep my feelings safe and build a wall so high,
That people trying to get in, will get tired and just sigh.
If someone really loves you, she said, they’ll scale through it all,
But remember, the path is not easy and if they want to rise, they will have to fall.
As another person fails to scale the high walls that I’ve built,
I stare out of my ice castle, for today I shall wilt.
Perhaps another contender will slowly make his way,
For now I shut the windows, tomorrow is a new day.
