Words

She touches me in places that I thought
Were closed off from the light of day. But how
She penetrates the defenses I’ve fought
So hard to erect is mystery. Now
Am I vulnerable? Can she now touch
The heart I’ve so far managed to protect?
In my dark places, there can’t be too much
Left to guard, if with words she can affect
The way I see the world, the way I love,
The way I go through life, the way I care,
The way the world sees me. Alas, she wove
A web that caught me blindly unaware.
With mighty words she turned me on my heel.
This changes what I know, and what I feel.
