Her hand in mine, I never thought I would get hurt again.
I always thought she was my shield, but it was only an illusion.
We’ll always get hurt.
Didn’t ever suspect it,
But it was all a joke.
A swarm of clustered bodies,
all their eyes staring at me.
I am the joke.
Curling my arms around her,
it only attracted more people
That I hoped would drop like flies.
Can’t find a friendly face,
Everyone who was on my team fled.
Shaking now, anger growing like a disease.
She had to hold my arms back,
keep me from strangling their throats.
They’re only cowards.
One step forward, they take ten steps
