Too frightened to let you in,
scared of you getting under my skin;
hearts guarded and vaulted shut,
can’t be destroyed if you huffed and puffed
your wasted breath.
challenge me if you must…
it’s just unwarranted lust.
leave me be, alone in my chamber
of protected nature;
no one can reach me now,
not after my long winded departure.
go… leave me be,
solitude is the place for me.
