I've built up so many walls since she left so i would never get hurt.

I stand on top of the tower

in which my heart rests,

looking at all the walls that I have built

that still are not broken.


I look into the distance

trying to see where they all end

but all i see are walls

reaching beyond the horizon.


I built these walls

with my own hands

and i wonder why

not even i can get past

these grey barriers

that block all emotions,

all pain.


Many are cracked

in various places

but still stand strong

and not able to break.


One day i hope

someone can break down my walls

so i can watch them

crumble and fall.

But this is a dream

that may never see reality


My heart is safe

in the center of all the walls

but its safety comes with a price:

never knowing what anything feels like

until it lands upon it

and crushes it.

beautifully relatable.
"walls aren't about keeping people out. There about seeing who cares enough to take them down."
There is some one able to do that for you.

well if thats true then theres only one person who cares enough to do that... i guess thats better then none right?
thanks for reading:)

This is a great poem. So true (um, not really for me but for some people) and so sad!
Heehee, this may sound childish but I won't mind taking down anyone's wall. I could be some kind of builder or something! Ram it down with a bulldozer!
...*sheepishly* Sorry.
