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.
