You Win

For as long as I can remember,
you kept me at arm’s length.
A little window here, a little crack there,
but never the full open view.
You invite me in your life
but never let me in.
You built walls around yourself
I can only dream of crumbling.
You wear an impermeable armor,
I can never take off.

I pushed and I pulled.
I loved and I hated.
Opened my senses,
learned to compromise.

Try as I may
all my efforts are futile.
You win.

  4. I agree with Has The Turtle, sounds like you're going through alot,(you and David, both), hope things go better with both of ya'll

  5. You know that quote... sometimes people build walls not to keep others out, but to see who will tear them down. Sometimes I think that's a bunch of crap. Anyway... at least you tried.
