I Still Want to Stay as Innocent as Ever

I slumped against the door of the wardrobe

I was terrified

That's why I locked myself in there

Heat emanated from my body

Heaving for air

Making the small space uncomfortably warm

I felt safe

But something pounded against my back

Through the thick, dark, wood

I turned around

Pressing my forehead to the wood

The pounding continued

But against my head

Sending ripples of pain

Echoing through my skull

It felt good

I lifted my head away

And looked at the hands I owned

The ones that inflict so much pain

In my left

Blood flowed between my fingers

In my right

A knife laid

Blood seeping from its edge

I stared at my hands

My eyes could barely stand the sight

They vibrated out of pure terror

Terror of what I could do

I threw my head back

And let the stars know my pain

The pounded stopped

But I gripped the knife

And stabbed at the door

It shattered into oblivion

I continued

I slammed my fists into the door

Cursing and asking for forgiveness

Forgiveness for what I had done to them

For what I had done to myself

A voice came from the other side

Soft and full of worry

They said my name

I stopped

Crystalline tears in my eyes

Shaking like a leaf in autumn

The voice came again

"I'm sorry."

"I shouldn't have gone that far."

"This is my fault."

"I didn't mean to scare you."

I took a deep breath

And barreled through the door

Into his lap

"No."

I murmured

"It's my fault."

"It's my fault..."

"That I still want to stay as innocent as ever."
