Closed Heart

A broken heart
Hidden behind a firewall
Not willing to take chances
For not even the flow of a thousand tears
Was enough to quench the burn
The last time that it was incinerated
Possibilities pass
As the fear of more pain
Keeps it closed to opportunity
Isolated and alone
The lack of a loving touch
Leaves it to shrivel and whither
Dried to crumble underfoot
Should it ever be exposed again
To the boot of the heartless
But maybe
Healing hands
With the right key
Can open it
