Build them up

Until you can’t see anymore

Protect yourself it’s safer

You say to yourself

In order to reassure,

To stay sane

You let the barriers remain

Ignore the pain

Shelter from the rain


You don’t want to be hurt again


Letting someone in

Letting someone win

Destroying you from within

Yet –

You are human

You can’t carry the heavy load

Entirely on your own

So over the barrier you throw

A rope

Only the most loyal will make it over the barrier

Those are the ones

That can help to carry the

Heavy emotional load


Because barriers can burst

Internal cracks do their worst

Emotional anarchy

Can happen so easily

Believe me

Maintain the barriers

But don’t let them suffocate

Use them to your advantage,

To ameliorate

Not obliterate.
