I’ve been told,

“Leave it as you found it.”

Open, Closed, leave it as you found it.

This is how you found me,

Guarded, Afraid, Untrusting.

You didn’t walk into my heart:

No, you snuck in quietly,


Should you tire of my ways

Cease to care for me as you do today

Leave it as you found it,

This fragile heart of mine.

Leave it guarded, suspicious, alert.

Leave it closed.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
