Sensitivity worn like an emotional vest . . . .


Anxieties harbered beneath this waistcoat,

She guarded herself with a coat of anger.

Ever hidden in the corner of her psyche

Like a chameleon personalities changed,

Emerged at will with the perfect effect,

With an inordinate response to the event . . . .


As one would defend a baby,

She defended herself.
