Shield

IMG_1713

to jump before the whisper
of the push eyes open
expended ropes frayed
beyond repair
there is no going back
the heart felt it
before the brain
could stop her a microphone
in front of a crowd with her diary
before her a shield
fights emotion with an emocon
tears cut through a leak
in time suspends it without permission
the shield in front of her hides
the knife at her back as it calls
for safety in familiarity
it’s too late to jump
she’s been pushed
