Hide Where No One Can Hurt Me | A Poem by Venessa Lisa Asvat

Sometimes I want to run away
Hide from your words that cut
Words meant to hurt me
Break me
Tear me up inside
Sometimes I want to close my ears, my eyes
Lock up my heart and soul
Where no pain can seep through
To stain my smile with sorrow
Sometimes I wanna curl up
Protect myself, crawl in my world
Where I am safe, alone
Untouchable
Sometimes I want to cry, to shout
I have no tears
Instead I hide, crawl in my shell
Where no one can hurt me
