The Delicate

Written by: Caitlin Dwinnell

There are simple things that make me happy,
Things as simple as a sound,
They flutter and surround me,
Glow and shimmer all around me,
Carry me across boundaries,
And gently lay me down,

They surround me in a force field,
My own protected space,
And despite what I might feel inside,
Confidence en lights my face, 

But when people ask me questions,
And I can't bare the answer,
I retreat inside myself,
I'm now a walker,
Not a prancer,

It's not their fault it's mine,
I wish that they could find,
I wish that they could see,
That I believe in me
