I've Got Half a Mind



I’ve got half a mind
to steal my life-

The part I gave away
to love
how it chained me,
captured heart-

Beating to another's
always bleeding
filling someone else's veins.   

I’ve got a half a mind
to take it back, it’s just
too late.

Once I gave it away
it will never find it’s
way home.

  3. Oh sometimes we can be overgiving to the point that we become depleted ... I get that. It's good to be self-caring as well and not so people-pleasing all the time. We need some balance between give and take. Nicely written, a good reminder, Lisa :)

  4. A very tough rut to be in, indeed. Ah, but don't you know, with a little nurturing a heart can be regrown. Send the old away with the one that would smother it, and give yourself a chance to become whole once again.

  6. We really have to protect those parts of ourselves that we treasure. We must, we really must.

  7. It's a pity! Sometimes one makes a wrong move and find it difficult to turn back. This is true not just in love but in everything else. Nicely Lisa!

  10. So much truth in this.. we cannot give away and take back.. and there are cases when the receiver is not worthy.. but once given....

  11. i like to believe that we always can seed and grow what we have to fruition ~ there are parts of us we gave away and can never take it back, true ~ perhaps better to let go of that part of ourselves, and make something new of us, once more ~ lovely writing ~
