My Walls

 

My walls are beautiful
high and strong
protecting me from those
who wish me harm
 
My walls were constructed
after many long years
I toiled to months 
to make them firm
 
My walls keep out 
those who scare me
but they also trap me inside
very much alone
 
My walls are solid
I forgot a door
so down and down 
I tore my walls
 
My walls are down
and then I met you
why did I ever hide
inside
 
My walls are far behind
I remember why I left
but now I am out
in the cold
 
My walls protected me
from the world
and you reminded me
of why.
