The Retreat

Once again
You retreat into
The walls you put up
To keep people out
Or is it to keep
Yourself in?

Once again
I see the light
Dwindle in your eyes
As your face
Turns to stone

The more I try
To break your walls
The more
You push me away

So I retreat
Away from your walls
Waiting, hopeful
That once again
The light will return
That this won’t be the time
You lock yourself up
Forever
