Walls

We have perfect thoughts for a perfect world….

But then reality hits us in the face when we head out to the world…

Rejection…disappointment…heartache…pain…becoming a regular occurance…

Driving us insane…

We build walls…

We build walls because we want to be in a safe space…

A safe space shielding us from what we perceive to be disgrace…

We say we’re fine when things are rough…

We say we’re good when things are bad…

We build walls…

Don’t worry about me we say…

When really we want people to give a damn about us…

But for fear of being perceived a bother…

We keep a lot of shit to ourselves…

We build walls…

On the sleeves of our shirts where our hearts once lay…

There’s an empty patch with no emotion to display…

Detained within these confines for fear of feeling free…

Anxiety…panic…shame…constant reasons to flee..

We build walls
