the walls

by anna

I've built walls.

A facade of strength.

To keep others out,

and my emotions locked in.

But then the doors close,

the walls fall,

and I allow myself to cry.

Because in a world as screwed up as this,

at least I know who I am.

And who I am is a girl broken beyond repair,

terrified of the world around her,

reading to escape her sorrows.

I built walls to keep others out,

but maybe it's done more to lock me in.
