These walls are
Useless, you know.
They're like a
One-way mirror,
Everything outside,
The dust, the dirt, the poison, in
But nothing that is inside out, not my
Tears or these
Words that I'm
Trying to think,
Not these
Emotions, expressions that
Are playing out in my mind,
And my heart, it's
Fossilizing, growing
All at once.
This air, the air I'm
Trying to breathe,
It doesn't get in, you know.
It doesn't get in.

Wow, thank you! And yes, I think I see what you mean with "you said so perfectly what you've said". :) And believe me, I hope it gets published too!

What an amazing poem! I truly hope this gets published so that more can read it. I was intrigued from the first two lines- it's as if someone had written this to me, to tell me about such things. You said so perfectly what you've said...if that makes sense. Overall, this poem is just perfect.
