A Thin Glass Wall

My trust in you
A thin glass wall
So frail
Easily broken
Transparent
I am blind
To lies
In plain sight

Hairline fractures
But still
I deny
Try to fix
And repair
You pile more behind
Secrets
Lies
Start to overflow
I see nothing
La La La
I hear nothing

It is shattered
I cannot ignore
A tidal wave
It crushes me
I am drowning
All I wanted to forget
I am suffocating
You never really cared

This is really dramatic. I love how the lines are really short and articulated. It really is a great poem. I think you should add more poetic elements into it, though. I think that would make your writing really pop. (:
