She rants, she raves…her anger is fierce
She hides, she pulls away.
Those who would help, she pushes aside.
Because she cannot show the heart inside.
The heart so fragile, so tender and true
Battered and broken and misunderstood
She longs for connection, for people who stay
She wants to be heard and valued and desired
The wounds have been many, the challenges hard
Her heart broken too many times.
So vulnerable and scared
Alone with her thoughts
Alone with her tears
She acts out, her weaknesses clear
She fights for clarity
Yearns to understand
While the voices in her head only condemn
Weary of the battle
And needing protection
She becomes a monster
Paranoid and irrational
Fighting to survive
In a world that seems cruel
She sits and weeps
Trying to protect the heart too easily broken
