Shell.



I'm unbreakable steel,
I'm unmovable will.
I'm the icy exterior,
so cold it could kill.
I'm the rock steadiness,
and the perfect calm,
I will never confess,
that I do give a d*mn.

So people attack,
biting words like wolves jaws.
I get whipped in the back,
their words leave me sore.
So many will cheat me,
thinking 'what the hell,'
because they confuse me for thick skinned,
they're fooled by my shell.

They don't know it hurts me,
but each time's like a smack.
And my shell of iron,
is now showing some cracks.

EMAIL ME AT sofisweetie@hotmail.com or add me on facebook for info on my other writing! https://www.facebook.com/SophieLarrrrrMarieMy name is Sophie Marie Roberts. I'm nearly 20 years old and I live in Wrexham, North Wales. I write poetry because it's one of the things that comes naturally. When I was a child I would try to write a diary like everyone else my age but I ended up with a book of poetry. I find it the easiest way to express what is happening in my mind too (which, in some cases, worries me- since my poetry is rather bizzare!) I don't have any diploma's, certificates or qualifications that tell me I should write but I write anyway. I hope people like my poetry- but I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea- but I hope it's yours. ALSO; PLEASE BE AWARE THAT ALLTHOUGH I WROTE 'THIS POEM MEANS' UNDERNEATH MY POEMS- I'M MERELY STATING WHAT IT MEANT IN MY HEAD. PLEASE INTERPRET MY POETRY HOWEVER YOU WISH. http://www.booksie.com/mystery_and_crime/short_story/inksplodges/bitter-freedom/chapter/1 < one of my short stories. more…
