Blogtober 2020, Day 2

Word of the day: Vault


Her heart is a vault

Concrete, steel reinforced walls

Impenetrable


Her heart is a safe

Guarded, secure, locked up tight

So few have access


She withdraws within

Locked away, secluded

Fortress surrounding


No one can enter

No affection is withdrawn

No love deposits


It’s better this way

No withdrawals, no deposits

No pain, no heartache


Some attempt access

No combination is shared

Leave empty-handed


Does she dare open up?

Let someone enter inside

Where guarded love lies?


Too many wanted

Withdrawals only, leaving no

Deposits behind


Nearly depleted

She longed to be replenished

Coffers filled again


But robbers waited

Eager only to pilfer

What little remained within


Once, she succumbed

The combination given

Trusting just this once


She offered riches

The treasure of her love

Her trust, all of her


He promised no harm

The bounty would stay with her

She shared freely


The door left open

He snuck away with it all

Nothing left behind


No deposits here

Only withdrawals, emptiness

The safe closed again


Her heart is a vault

Concrete, steel reinforced walls

Impenetrable
