We put up our walls

Hasitly hiding our fractured minds

Hoping someone will hear our silent calls

to come break down our walls and find

our shattered hopes and dreams

that obstruct and make us blind

The fractures are now cracks

though still concealed within

We are plagued with attacks

Yet the casualties are still hidden

Our cracks are now holes

barely concealed by the patches

Our walls are no longer whole

and are surrounded by blackness

And still no one sees

Our walls are crumbling down

on us but we cannot flee

from our mind or we would drown

in an abyss of shattered souls

Just like our own

TRULY relatable, hiding behind curtains we expect to hide the chinks in our armor... but it's never successful, is it?
