The secret vault

Deep in the confines of my heart
There is a locked vault
It’s well guarded
By walls so high
That not many would dare to climb
Love is a fickle thing
And my heart is too fragile
It has been broken
And pieced back together many times
Only to be broken all over again
And so I have locked it away
Only the most deserving ones,
Can ever gain entry
The ones who don’t give up,
But instead, care to and dare to
Climb the unending rows of walls
The ones who won’t
Shatter my heart all over again

      1. Not really. Not that part. Dealing with people can be exhausting. You should know. You’re in charge of hiring and firing!
        Hey, why don’t you write about that?


  1. I connected to it. Because I personally am like that who doesn’t let anyone invade my space. Not everyone is bound to know what’s there inside. I built walls tall around me.

    I connected and I liked it!
    Good job Shweta!

    1. Someone might. If they feel you are worth fighting for! And if and when they do that, you’ll know that you’ve got someone for life. They’ll stay with you through thick and thin, come hell or high water. And such people are very hard to come by.


  2. Without your heart breaking even once, tou could write these lines Shweta. That is called talent.
    And I wish that it never ever happens to you . Always be loved and be happy dear ❤️❤️

    1. So everyone keeps telling me. I guess I’ve read enough books and seen enough movies/series to get the hang of it. 😅 I hope it never happens too. Thank you so much for your warm wishes, my dear. That’s so sweet of you. Take care. Have a great day. ❤️🤗
