Getting to know you was like wading
in a river filled with nails;
the surface looks so calm and glassy
welcoming and refreshing
but the deeper in I go
the more likely I am to get pierced
by the rusted steel you tell yourself
youโ€™re keeping for protection.
You think that this world is
do or die
kill or be killed
and you canโ€™t see that the majority
of the casualties you loved
have died from your own defenses.
