Poetry Corner – “Unbreakable”

“Unbreakable”

You walk with that stride
That says you won’t take too kind
To someone jerking you around
But then she comes along
With the one thing that shakes you from the inside

Don’t try to be so hard
You’re not unbreakable
You shouldn’t be so scared
The truth is all we have to bear
Don’t think I’m so fragile
But sometimes I’m breakable, too

You’ve got your armor
Like you’ve played one’s shining knight
More times than the sky’s seen light
And she comes along
With that one thing that makes you want to fight
Once more, just for her

I’ve stood the polite distance to give you privacy
Working on the logic that keeps me from lunacy
You’ve got ghosts and I’ve my own, no lie
But why does she have to matter so much this time?

Don’t try to linger too long
You’re not unbreakable
You should be more wary
She will use you with no caring
Don’t think I’m so fragile
But sometimes I’m breakable, too

Don’t be so hard, don’t linger
Don’t be so scared, be wary
Don’t think I’m so fragile

I can be strong
But not for very long
