Stone by Stone

By
I have a wall you cannot see,
Because it's deep inside of me.
It blocks my heart on every side,
And helps emotions there to hide.
You cant reach in,
I cant reach out.
You wonder what its all about.

The wall i built that you cant see,
Results from my insecurity.
Each time my tender heart was hurt,
The scars within grew Worse and Worse.
So stone by stone,
I built a wall,
Thats now so thick it will not fall.

Please understand that its not you-
Do continue trying to break through.
I want so much to show myself.
And love from you will really help.
So bit by bt,
Chip at my wall,
Till stone by stone it starts to fall.

I know the process will be slow-
Its never easy to let go.
Of hurts and failures long ingrained,
Upon one's heart from years of pain.
Im so afraid
to let you in;
I know i might get hurt again.

I try so hard to break the wall,
But seem to get nowhere at all.
For stone upon each stone ive stacked,
Left between them not a crack.
The only way to make it fall,
Is imperfections in the wall.

I did the best i could to built a Perfect Wall,
But there are stil a few small flaws,
Which are the key to breaking through the wall to me.
Please use each flow
To cause a crack
To knock a stone off of the stack.

For just as stone by stone was laid, With every hurt and every pain.
So stone by stone the wall will break,
As love replaces every ache.
Please be the one,
Who cares enough,
To find the flaws, no matter what!

This is the best poem I have read so far. I've only read maybe 15 so far and to me yours is the best. I felt like this before, I expressed it but not as well as you. Just remember that you are not alone. Good Luck.
