Turtle heart'd Human

I have a turtle

shell heart

when it comes to you

I

Used

To like

To walk around

Like one

Of the

Knights

Of

The round

table

I

Was

King Arthurs

Youngest

disciple

I

Gladly paraded

About the town

In my impenetrable

 Armour

But then

You

Came along

And

Flipped

Me upside down

Exposing

My

Soft

Vulnerable beating life

source

Organ............................................


I hoped

That

No one would ever make feel again...........


You see

I

have a turtle

shell heart

when it comes to you.....

and

I

Am

Afraid

Of what that could do.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,



Because

The underside

Of

Turtle

Skin is often known to bruise

Cupids Arrows


are  the most

common  cause of death

to

the

Upward

Facing

legs in the air flailing........


Amorous yet

delirious


Turtle

heart'd

Human
