The Wooden Door
You met me as an innocent child
If only for a little while
But even a little was too much
Because behind you is where I learned the meaning of
The word…. crutch.
Twist and turn my mind you did
Until that kid ran and hid
But you awakened that angry child
The one who would live life running wild.
Behind you is where the secrets lived
Because I couldn’t hang around to see what you did
She protected me from things I didn’t want to know
She took all the pain and it would show.
Red, purple and eventually white
That’s the colors of her painful stripes
Your evil would once again score
All behind that wooden door.
