Cruel Words

Take my heart
It is barely beating
Place it in a small box
It may be compact
But it will fit
Now close it up tight
Seal it to keep everyone out
Place it on a shelf up high
For I want no one to touch it
It has been taking hits all week
It needs a place to feel
Safe and out of his reach
At least for today
Now no one can hurt me again
