Crush and Break

Posted: February 26, 2012 by uncannyj in Exposed, poems

You felt,
But never melt.
You cried,
But never sobbed.

You have been hurt,
But never bleed.
You have fallen,
But never again.

Those scars in you,
A carved memory.
Those nightmares,
Never leaving, always lingering.

The dark is comforting,
And the night is calming.
You live with a smile,
But sleep with a cry.

A touch is alarming,
And a hug is danger.
Never a single step forward,
As you fade in silence,
Away from it all.
