Protected


You acted as if I was fragile
As if I was going to break
You kept me sheltered
Protected
Locked away from the torments of the world
You thought it was good
That you were keeping me safe
I thought the same
I truly did
I thought I could stay happy
Without a care or worry
But I didn't know until it was too late
That I was dependent on your protection
That I was dependent on you
Because
The day you were no longer there
The day you were gone
Was the day I broke?
The day the torment caught a hold of me
The day my walls of safety collapsed
You thought I was protected
But I was actually unprepared and overpowered
By the pain
Everything ensued
