PROTECTION

Billowing
clouds gather moisture
cumulus and dark threating
the day.

Silently
a breeze whispers of
of youthfulness and its'
sweet hour.

Gallant leaves
close the gap hovering
together, forming umbrellas
for protection.

Plaited
arms entwine
shielding viewpoints providing
safe guards.

A brave
knight mounts his white
stallion arrayed in shining
armour.

Challenging the trade winds
emerging victorious.

I'll Protect You

I see him walking towards me
I hide myself behind you
You see him
You look at me
"I'll protect you"

I'm sitting alone
He sits down next to me
My eyes show you i'm scared
You come up and ask if i'm okay
I say sure
You leave
I ask you later
"When you need me i'll protect you"

You see me curled in a ball
I'm crying but he's nowhere in sight
You ask me where he is
If he has hurt me
You say "I'll protect you"
I shake my head
I look up into your pain filled blue eyes
"How can you protect me from my memories?"

My Protection

Folder: 
2001

Yet another has found me

And wants to try to win me

I have no objections to this

 

But the walls are all around

Whatever is in cannot be found

For my walls are ever so strong

 

Yet this knight wishes to try

I allow him his wish for a try

Knowing it shall not work at all

 

I do it naught on purpose you see

These walls have become a part of me

And are unwilling to come down

 

I want to feel love truly I do

But I am afraid to let go to you

For if I do I may lose all again

 

I have felt this pain before

And I desire its sting no more

So I pull my walls ever tighter

 

Walk away now with your heart

Before it is given, go back to the start

So you won’t feel the wrath of my pain

Author's Notes/Comments: 

"My Protection" was like a veil. I knew I had it and was telling them not to bother attempting to break me out of my shell.

LOVE KNOTS

Billowing clouds
gather
moisture
cumulus and dark
threating the day.

Silently a breeze
whispers of
youthfulness and
its sweet hour.

Gallant leaves
close the gap
hovering together
forming tiny
umbrellas
for protection.

Plaited arms
entwine
shielding view-
points
providing
safe guards.

A brave knight
mounts his
white stallion
arrayed in shining
armour.

trade winds
