Shield

Let them love you

For I am not fully equipped to shield your fragile heart in my bare hands

Afraid I will squeeze the life out of you unknowingly

Feeding you words that have escaped so eloquently from my lips with the intentions of loving you but only keeping you for myself when I feel lonely

Only to use you when I feel empty,

Disguising this cold heart my hard shell protects from being loved by women who only see innocence and vulnerability

I am not what you see,

Or am I?

My heart hits the ground running when It sense that warmth you give off when you want more,

I cannot protect you from my intentions,

I am too busy running from myself,

hoping to land in the open dark place that makes me feel ..most. Safe.
