Year after year
Brick after brick
The wall has gone up
Blocking others from entrance
Hinding pain and weakness
Hinding true emitions
Behind masks of smiles, scarcasm, and anger
Just so weeakness and pain is not shown

Then he came along
Peice by peice
Moment by moment
He took it down
To let himself into it's depths
So deep he crawled
All the pain he saw
All the weekness

Everything hiden for years
He let it go around him
The wall had broken
The mask was gone
Just for him
Only him

Then he did somehing
Something horrible
He betrayed the walls trust
Then felt it for everyone to see
The pain and weakness inside
He left it on it's own again

Faster and faster
Section by section
The wall was rebuilt
Stronger than brfore
This time no one would come in
Not again
No one would cause pain like that again

He'll come back
He'll get in
But he wont get out
He wont leave
He'll only see
No one else
No more pain

I love how deep and metaphorical this poem is. Amazing work.
