I have built a wall around myself,

I don’t allow anyone to enter it,

Not because I don’t trust anyone.

But life has taught me,

time and again

that whenever you come too close,

they eventually, unfailingly, send you apart.

And all you’re left with are some cracks in the wall

which only reminds you of how you tried and hoped,

and warns why you shouldn’t do that again.
