Inktober drawing #3

20181013_001421.jpg

The prompt for today was “guarded.” I drew a human heart with chains and a lock to show that I don’t just let anyone into my heart.I am guarded and weary of love.

Accompanying this drawing is the following poem:

A heart is a funny thing

It is fickle

It is delicate

I fear to give it away

Is to give up part of myself

This body, home to this heart

Is the only thing that is truly mine

If in weakness I give in

It will only result in pain

So with a lock and some chains

I stash it away

Forbidden from feeling too much

For another
