A poem about love by Barbara Edwards

You said you needed time to sort your feelings out
To understand and decide what love is all about

Stupidly I nodded when you asked me to wait
No matter your decision, it came too late

Love’s glowing scorched my heart...
            Love’s burning teared my eye
To stop the heat that sears my soul
            I’ve built a wall heart high
So my eyes could clear
            I made it thick and wide
Behind cold stone I put myself
            Pressed close enough to hide.

Chin up, feet braced, I have no strength
            To reach
Across that wall another will never breach

Behind my wall I am alone
            In cold unhappy night
And this will be my final poem
            There’s nothing left to write
