She’s strong-but weak inside.
Her feelings…she longs to hide.
Pushing people away, and protecting her heart.
Distance is what keeps others apart.
She confines herself behind the walls she builds.
Hiding her loneliness and possibly, guilt.
She smiles a smile; pretending, all the while.
Life is hard…
Behind her self-built walls.
Sadness has no escape
joy cannot come in.
Sometimes…ever so carefully,
she removes a brick and allows a moment of joy…
a moment of laughter…
a moment to come alive.
But then, suddenly, the smile is gone…
disappearing as quickly as it appeared.
The brick…in place;
and the wall…becomes a barrier once again.
Day by Day, she maintains her walls. She’s in control.
But maybe, just maybe…
She’s waiting for that one person to break the barrier…
Break her will…Break the silence.
That one person who cares enough
to show her how to build a bridge.
