Safely Hidden

I am a wall.
A tower.
A freaking barricade.

Nothing goes through me because I can read your twisted mind.
I know what you want.
I know what your desires are.
I know your fears, your passions.

You are dangerous. You need to stay away.

I am hidden.
I don't have to feel your pain, your joy, your vulnerability
Behind this wall, this tower, this barricade - I am safe.
So what if I'll never know?
I've seen enough of everyone else's love.

I am scared for my own. What if it shatters? Drops?
What if I can't get back up?

I'll never know...

... But...
You are Love. You are dangerous.
You need to stay away.


  1. Love is pretty dangerous. But overcoming that danger makes us stronger.

    +To Me It Matters+

    1. "Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage." - Lao Tzu

  2. No one knows how many variations of heartbreak it takes to build the barricade insurmountable. Let's hope it might always be overcome.

    1. "Every night I pray,
      I'll have you here someday.
      I'll count the stars tonight,
      And hope with all my might
      That when I close my eyes,
      You'll be right by my side."
