High walls. Cold heart. Thick skin. Hard rocks. This was my life.
I felt a sharp pain striking right down my chest…it was meant to hurt less. I had been through this a thousand times; but it didn’t.
It was the pain that came from my bruises and scars.
It was the pain I felt the day I watched mother earth receive your body.
I stared with bloodshot eyes crimsoned from all the tears I had shed.
I watched in defeat as she swallowed you proudly and the sand came falling on your bed, bidding you home.
I swallowed in pain and turned away from the sight that was threatening to rip out my hurting throat.
My gaze fell upon a shining light so bright; I cursed it.
Why were the heavens so delighted to receive you?
What would I do without you, my darling wall?
My paths were going to be slippery.
I was going to believe the words I swore never to.
I was going to laugh freely without fear.
I was going to believe in me again.
I had been here before…I had loved and lost.
I couldn’t have my walls let me down by giving way now that I needed her the most.
But then she had to go away…
I had met George and it was going to be different now.
I no longer had to cry myself to sleep.
I was sure to face the world with renewed gusto.
I had a reason to feel alive once again.
I fell in love… and it changed my life.
