Walls

Walls

who said walls don’t have ears?
they have
my silent mourners to all my fears
the sole eyewitness to all my tears
my constant ally all through these years

who said walls don’t breathe?
they do
they breathe air to my breathless lungs
my only comfortable solace place
in my distress and sadness

walls don’t crumble
walls don’t fall
easily

but

slowly
my walls are down
they are gone

liberating.

  2. Such beautiful profound poem, so true to think about how the witnessing walls around give us space to break down walls within us.

  4. OH! I love this poem, SweetMich! It’s one of your bestest! πŸ™‚
    I’ve thought, and felt, this same way. Often those physical walls give us a place to shelter, be safe, think, gain courage, etc., until we are ready, and able, to break down those walls around our hearts. πŸ™‚ ❀
