walls too high

brick walls
build them, though not too high
so as not to see.
so as not to be trapped.

i keep reaching for the silver lining.
i'm reaching for you and you're not there,
yet in my head, your words echo...
"dont give up, we've gone so far"

my soul is dying, yet its this wall i keep climbing.
please no trespassing.
this is my space to live.
to love.
to learn. to die.

adapting to the change, i cant let you go.
in a perfect world this wouldn't have failed.
don't let us die, keep holding on
when all you've got are memories...
time feels so long

this humility is creating an inner strength, as i continue to build these walls

though you don't want them too high
