POETRY5: “LOCKED INSIDE”

I win.
She won’t let you in.
She’s aware of how dangerous I am,
so she’s battling me alone, with what’s left of her defense.

Want to help her?
You should’ve known better
than even mentioning my name.
Now I’m wide awake again,
and she’s got no one left but herself to blame.

She’s mine.
She has to pretend that she’s always been fine.
No matter how many times and how much they’ve let her down,
she still doesn’t want me to come around to give them punishment.

Let’s see how can grow stronger:
Will it be me…or her?
In the meantime, you’re more than welcome to sit and watch,
since she may resurface…or stay locked within and out of external touch.

R.
