You got hurt, bad in ways, so you built walls around yourself. You do not allow anybody to get too close to you in fear of being hurt in ways not many will ever know.

sputtering often the truth
as it comes out like static
torturous it clings
like entrails stuck
half in, half out

egg yolk
pleasing to taste buds
forming like glue
on corners of the mouth

and the truth
still static as it sputters
torturous as it clings against walls
you built so nobody gets in
