My heart has yet to be held hostage by love.
I have seen what love can do to people.
It can take a person and give them wings to soar above the clouds.
It can make you feel invincible.
It can fill your heart with a pleasant warmth.
I have seen so many people fall so deeply and passionately then land in the arms of another.
Yet I have seen people fall and land onto slabs of concrete.
I have seen men have their wings ripped out of their backs.
And I have seen them fall so hard and so fast and crash into a million pieces.
I have seen women become so fooled and so blinded, that they did not see that they were headed straight for a cliff.
I have heard them cry out to the heavens.
No, my heart has yet to be held hostage by love.
And I'm not quite sure I want it to be.
