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.

What an incredible metaphor, so fitting for building mental walls and the things that can smash them unbidden. Wonderful write, Victoria! ~~Bonnie Q
