Pincushions Etc.

Why is it that when you hand your heart on a platter,
They think that its just the thing to use as a pincushion?
And its such a pain later to sit and take each pin out.
One by one, with nary but a sigh allowed to escape.
All this and some hit me when I was in mode introspection.
That in this day and world there is no place for affection.
And so, I am cynical of my abstraction.
And bored of being called an aberration.
Disenchanted with the word called love;
Merely a word, apparently denoting a treasure trove,
Of emotions so flighty that they are a myth.
So I am giving up on this business forthwith.
From this moment forth my heart shall bear a sign:
"Keep out,  Trespassers prosecuted on crossing this line".

@koo and parv: thanks for your kind words but I really dont think my poems are publishing quality...yet.

@bard: i am not kidding

@ritayan: not the 1st time i am hearing it, but this is my writing style. if there is any particular style i follow that is. i dont try too hard at anything, lazy mazy that i am, so why rhyming?
