Walls Around Me

The solid walls keep building themselves higher and higher,
Obscuring the light from coming through the cracks. It is not
Your fault if the walls become more difficult to climb because
It just means that everyone who has claimed to love me prior
To you give me every reason to keep building. The direct shot
Is what I protect myself from. I am never looking for applause
Or to be swept off my feet, but to be with someone who lets
Me take my wall down, one brick at a time until they see me
And do not want to hurt what I have to offer. Someone who
Tells me to let it go and I will believe them. So many regrets
Within the walls. I loved all the wrong people or chose to be
In situations that brought me down so if I choose to let you
Love me, it comes with this warning: I want you, but I never
Need you
and just maybe I will let go of my grip on the lever.
