Walls

Walls

I put up walls
I put up 7 years worth of walls
I put up 7 years worth of walls
and somehow you climbed them
you got over the walls I put up
7 years I put up 7 years worth of walls
and it didn’t even take you that long
7 years of walls and somehow you
you we’re welcome I put up 7 years
7 years and intruder alarms did not go off
7 years worth of walls and you were wanted
I put up 7 years 7 years of pain 7 years of hurt
7 years of tears and mistrust 7 years of nothing gained
to keep out those same things 7 years of them
so I could have 7 years without them
7 years of walls and you climbed them in one bound
I put up 7 years of worth of walls and it didn’t take you long
you got over after 7 years and it didn’t even feel wrong
I let you in and I don’t know how and now I’m wondering why
I’m wondering why I let down my guard
why for you it wasn’t that hard
years 7 years I kept myself safe
7 years now gone like they never existed
heart broken again broken after 7 years
and it hurts even more this time because I sheltered
I didn’t let it feel we never felt we coasted along
we coasted not caring because caring means pain
caring means trust and trust can lead to betrayal
you are now the reason behind the reasoning
the reason why I built it built 7 years
should I build up 7 more or let the hurt wash over me
should I accept the pain and never feel this way again
or will I feel it either way so 7 more years 7 more years of walls
7 more years of being detached 7 more years if I don’t care
7 more years of he’s really nothing to me
7 more years of a lock with no key 7 more
