How do I separate,
The layers you've cemented?
Building interlocking walls,
With self preservation as intended,
Never being hurt again,
Means blocking out the sun,
And if I took a step your way,
Would you turn around, and run?
How can I pass through,
The locked gates, tall and strong,
I'll never do you any harm,
I hope you've known that, all along,
Never being vulnerable,
Means always hiding who you are,
And if I showed my love to you,
Would your distance be too far?
