White Walls

My bones leak out
An exoskeleton
Protection
Rough and hard
But my bones are brittle
And break off in tiny shards
I want to run
To chase you
But my bones do not bend
They break
A cracked tomb
You can’t get in
I can’t give in
I want to be wrapped in your arms
Not these bleached bones
I rattle and shake
Hoping for them to break
So I can make my escape
This cage digs in
Punctures and scrapes
A mausoleum of my own creation
Built from futility and contrition
Help me
Save me
Break me
Bring down these white walls
With your lovely claws
Pierce my armor
Strike away my sternum
Rip it all apart
Rib by rib
