Megha's World

I fail miserably to guard my self
my heart
my emotions
my eyes
which gives away
every single feeling
every moment
I spent;
I try so hard to disguise
I try to stop
those fleeting memories
of the time spent
near the corners of my smile
near those dimpled bends;
Nobody blames you
for turning my world
upside down
drowning me with your love
and painting my heart
in the darkest shade of crimson
you can possibly found;
All I hear is the word of advice
a hush
a whisper
to safeguard my precious heart
they say
they all talk in unison
and declare me
inefficient.
 This post is in response to the daily prompt  Inefficient
