I keep this so close to me
On a chain around my neck
To give or to keep
I trust you
This is the key that unlocks my love
That unlocks the cage around my heart
My hands shake
As I unhook the chain
The chain I've worn for so long
I lay the key in your hands
Scared, I look in your eyes
Fear is what I see
I tell you:
"I give you the key to my heart, to my love, and to me"
I realize that I'm no longer shaking
I'm confident
In you
In your love
In your loyalty
In how much I love you
I leave you the key
That I wore for so long
You give me the confidence
To love
To love you
To love you forever
Forever, you will hold the key to my heart
My love
And to me

My inspriation was a gift that was given to me by my sister. It was a key with the heart on top. I thought alot about the poem and am really proud of it.

I really thought your poem showed a lot of emotion but could also use work to flow better. c:  -Shana
