chains

She builds these walls so high

She hurts herself like this

Because it’s her only shield

Bt’s her only way to protect herself

It’s her only way to live

She wants to escape

She plans to escape 

But they never come through

Right when she plots to take off the armor

She finds a sword swimming at her

And she spooks

The dark allure of her comfort and pain

Brings her back

She’s just a frightened young kid

Unable to break free of her chains

This poem is about: 
Me
