I used to live safely in the confines
Of my heart, never needing anyone
To feel fine, but my lonely heart still pined
In silence for the man who had me won.
As the fair Rapunzel in her tower,
So was my heart in it's box with no key.
My past loves had left me bitter and sour,
With my heart an innocent casualty.
Then came love from such a far away place,
And my box was not opened, but broken
Into so a new love could fill the space
That was there all along but unspoken.
I know that it is not safe to be out,
But it's the risk I'll take without a doubt.
