I am blind

My soul bears scars
From times when I've allowed
People to get too close
My soul is unique
It is the only thing I possess
Outside of mind
My skin
My bones and flesh
I let people in
All the time
And my heart doesn't stop
Letting them
Get within
The boundaries I've set
The walls I've built
And every day I am wounded
Every day I am scarred
By my own hand
When I refuse
To hold them back
They break me
Strip me
Rip me
Tear my soul
Until I am blind
To anyone in need
Other than me
