You will never find your way to me,
Never learn what lies inside,
For the walls I build around me,
Are there so I can hide.
You press and prod with questions,
Listen for clues I let slip,
Try and piece me together,
From words that escape my lips.
Each direction that you travel,
And every angle you take,
Lead you around in circles,
My resolve your trying to break.
I drink to try and forget me,
You use it to push me some more,
But my mind remains clear and lucid,
You can't push through these walls.
My resistance begins to take its toll,
On your relentless desire to know,
Just who is the person inside me,
Your impatience now starting to show.
There are no more avenues left to navigate,
To break through and tear these walls apart,
Over time I have built them stronger,
This impossible maze around my heart.
Emotional defenses that I have built are shored up with stronger walls over time.
Ahhh wonderful job!
this is just amazingly well written. nice work
This is beautifully written. It's a truth that many of us who have been hurt do to protect ourselves from it happening again.
