Brick Wall

Why did you do that to yourself?

You ruined your own life

I watched you separate yourself

building a brick wall.

Slowly cementing brick by brick

until the wall was tall.

Only then did you realize

how much the other side was worth.

But sadly for you,

the only ladder available

is sitting next to me.
