This is a beautiful and deeply poignant poem, Stafford, one which affects me profoundly. You express so much real human emotion in such an endearingly moving way.
Liked the 'failed forced entry' line. It gives the piece it guts. Well done.
You say a lot with very little as only a true writer can...it is a powerful poem! :-)
Very few lines but it speaks volumes!
excellent. short and pointed...i wonder if many hearts lock faces bear as many scars...
How is it that so few words can wield such power.Fabbo.
ah but if one had the right key, there would be no forced entry...
"Guarding my heart" - well written.Thanks for visiting my entry for last week - and yes I am a Kiwi ;-)
Powerful! So much said with so few words.
to have had so many who tried to unlock that beautiful being of who you are, yet failed to reach into you. such a simple statement but a powerful magpie!!

Forced entry .... never a good thing! Beautifully written, as usual.
Heartfelt, Stafford. Nice one.
Dear Stafford: Lovely haiku! Heartfelt wisdom. Who's going to unlock the heart? What does it take?

Lucky you are to have something guard your heart..just heard a click!!
One's heart is important to protect and nurture.
This one strikes home! Lovely!
love the combination of words. 'sentinel,' holds such imagery. good job with this.
And I wonder at the doorgate ...What caused such a sentinel in the first place?Lovely!
so simple....but so very beautiful and full of feeling.*swoon*;)
