Walls

You say you’re here
But you’re not
Not really
You’re in between
The walls that go up
When you’ve been hurt
One too many times
And I am here
On the other side
My own walls crumbling down
Leaving me afraid
Vulnerable and weak
At your mercy

You say you’re here
But you’re not
Not really
But you do hold my heart
In your hands
Your fingers loose, open
Undecided
For there’s always something
I have to learn
To earn
Your love
To have you
To have me

And I live with the fear
And the pain of knowing
That at any moment
You can reject me
Abandon me
Hurt me beyond recovery
If I don’t get this right
Simply toss my heart to the ground
Step on it, crush it
Then turn, walk away
And never look back

You say you’re here
But you’re not
Not really

What a horrible place to be…
