Get me out of here by Angela van Son

He hurt me
My skin curled up
hardened
chain mail

He hurt me
My dropping saliva
thickened
venom

He hurt me
My tailbone lengthened
lashed
scythe

He hurt me
My stained teeth
sharpened
piercers

He won’t hurt you
my child
I have built
a protective wall

He won’t hurt you
my child
there’s a moat
filled with poison

He won’t hurt you
my child
I’ll make a lunge
if he approaches

He won’t hurt you
my child
I’ll have his head
on a stake

My dragon
tries to protect me
it does more harm
than it knows

My castle
tries to shield me
it imprisons
unintentionally

My untouched child
you are like sleeping beauty
I’ll need seven dwarfs
to get you out of here

  1. It is a difficult thing, protecting someone from harm without forbidding them to discover and enjoy life. This is the balance that we as parents must find.
    Even more so when there was abuse of any kind.
    I am very confident that you will get it. And if not, at least you’ll have tried because you were aware of it 🙂
    Sending you hugs.
    Beautiful poem by the way!
