The Girl Behind the Wall

Pluck her from her comfort zone.
Convince her not to stay alone.

The charming girl behind that wall
Is terrified to let it fall.

She’s going to take a lot of work.
For that, just thank a certain jerk.

The one who baited, promised, flattered
And—once he won her—left her shattered.

Now every man’s a ruthless snake,
A calling card for more heartache.

She’s had her guard up much too long.
Are you the one to prove her wrong?

Restore her faith in fairy tales?
Put the wind back in her sails?

It won’t be easy; she’ll resist.
She tends to soften when she’s kissed.

But please make sure your lips are true.
I’m ... she's pinning her last hopes on you.

  1. Ooh, I love this! Especially this line: A calling card for more heartache.
    Way to go, as usual, Ivy!

  2. Great job, I loved it.

  3. OH how I loved this.
    For so many reasons, for you writing it, for me reading it and trying to stem the tears of nostalgia.

    I've let this man in before , before my happily ever after, and he ruined me for years, forever, maybe.

    it was beautiful, it was true, it was everything you're good at and with.

    I love your words my dear, dear friend. XO

  4. Oh Ivy. I loved this too. Trust is easily shattered and not so easily restored. Your words give hope to all of us who have been there. Hugs, sweetie:)

  5. Oh I love to read your post!
    And this was no exception, Its so true, that it takes much more to tear down a wall than to build it.

  6. Love that turnaround at the end.. you have quite the knack for that.. nice work, Ivy.

  7. I agree with Steph... fabulous turn around. I love how you snuck that in st the end. And so so true for a lot of us ladies; I think we've all meet his brothers haha.
