Once Bitten …

Once Bitten …

Cautious and careful
My options remain open
when it comes to you
Requirements have changed
You will never again be
the only arrow in my quiver
Experience has taught me
you are dangerous for my heart
and I must protect it
No more will I slide
down the slippery slope
of your empty words
I remain vigilant that you will
not see my vulnerability
I wear these rituals like 
Impenetrable armor
But somewhere in my mind
I want to think that in the end
there is always hope
