my gentle heart

the demons
& sirens
were called forth
to protect
that soft & gentle
part of me
called forth
to keep my loving heart
walls built
to keep said heart
until a time came
when i forgot
all about
my gentle heart
& only saw
the thorny walls
& snapping beasts
who protected her.

those out grown defenses. one day i will write a comic about it. those dysfunctional super powers that we abused adult children are afraid to let go of.
watch me turn into a monster to keep my own heart safe.
time to find a new job for those monsters….
