Shieldless - A Poem

Updated on August 29, 2014

I haven't shared for a while so here goes...

#23 - Shieldless

I am shieldless against the arrow.

I am soleless on a bed of glass.

I am deaf against the sound

and blind against the light.

I'm a mouse in a herd of lions.

I'm a girl in a crowd of men.

I am lost in a mirrored maze.

I am found on war-torn ground.

I am guilty when charged innocent.

I am defenceless against words.

I am too close to the fire.

I am naked in your arms.

I am scared.

I am vulnerable.

But I too,

am loved.

      Powerful and beautiful! I found myself drawn into an emotional struggle and then in the end, gently released. You have a true gift for poetry. Keep with it.
