Don't touch me.

More fragile than oldest antique,
dirtier than history itself,
angrier than stormiest night;
more delicate than frost in the hand,
I’m frightened, used, bruised, abused and
b

n.

Don’t touch me.

I need you
but gently, be with me,
help build me and trust me.
Don’t push me,
or use me,
nor scare me.
Share with me, teach me, just
s
l
o
w
l
y
until I’m ready….

Don’t touch me.

    wow that speaks for itself pain

  • Pain indeed. Past hurts, pain or abuse moves with you, those who inflict that that causes such destruction need be brought to account of their actions for their doings can destroy/interfere with the lives of others. Those damaged need time to learn to recover and choose to stand up, move forward and not be a victim….
