The Shell Around My Heart


14 Aug, 2011 07:42 PM
Trapped inside this lonely shell,
is where I'd rather be.
Then outside in that dreadful world, 
where suffering awaits me.

I've fought this battle for way too long, 
I think I'll just give in. 
At least I'm not arrogant man and 
admit I couldn't win. 

So please don't judge me too harshly 
for wanting to just hide. 
For when suffering bared his horrible fangs,
the hope inside me died.

So here I am inside this shell,
even tho it's dark.
Feeling the cuts upon my heart,
where suffering left it's mark

i can really relate to this poem, i hide from my true feelings all the time, it hurts way too much to show anyone so i keep to myself.

I know how you feel, but one day someone will indeed come into your life that you will not want to hid your feelings and that person will never hurt you for they will under stand your painful feelings.
