Strongly built to protect it all

Against a force that beckons to call

Behind this wall, itís easy to live

No more to get with less to give.


In one instant, the flood rages in

Attacking that wall, wearing it thin

The onslaught becomes too much to bear

Unstopable, without warning, no time to prepare


Pain flashes through the heart and soul

Destroying what was once thought whole

Sooner or later, the walls crumble and break

Creating inside an unbearable ache.


All at once, never in small measures

Memories invade of all past treasures.

No longer mine, they belong to another

Why would I care? Why even bother?


Although the pain is less than before

I beg to be saved from bearing it more. 

I reach for the concrete and mortar of my mind.

In hopes to leave those memories behind.


Hastily rebuilding that wall of protection.

Each block in place, no room for rejection.

Built from tears and not from blood

Safe again from memories flash flood.
