Poem about painful love

There is a reason,
Why my heart is locked,
For there are those who con,
Their way into my box

I want to be protected,
I do not want to feel pain,
I just want to be free,
Of humanity 

I do not like these feelings,
Ranging within my mind,
I cannot place a name,
I cannot tell you why,
To this hurricane


Why is it?
That one human,
One person,
Can cause me to feel,
All these different things,
That I could never feel before

Even though you have hurt me
Cause me pain beyond imagination
I still want you to want me
Will you be my salvation?

Why do I still care?
When you told me I meant nothing
Told me not to,
Get ahead of myself, was it?

I thought you may have cared, 
But I guess I was wrong,
This is the reason, 
Why my heart was locked for so long

What is worth this pain?
Of having someone within your heart, 
Only for them,
To tear it apart.
