Putting a shell around my heart

So started watching House, and thought of this while watching it.

Letting go of the attachments that I hold dear,
Putting a shell around my heart,
To protect it from the pain,
You put it through…

People think I’m cynical,
That I don’t let people,
Get close to me.

Truthfully its just a trust thing…

One day I will open up again,
It will just take the right person,
One who believes in me,
And understands me for me…

Let’s just wait and see,
How the story unfolds…

  1. I love House. That biting sarcasm is second to none. It is grim and horrific at times but it does show us what it is like to live in a world where everything only appears to be perfectly normal.
