I’ve built a wall
Of sorrows and disappointments
I’ve built a wall
Where our life just stops –
Just like that.
I knock and knock
On the door to the side
Where you still reside.
Once
Twice
Thrice
For hours I do
And then I lose the count.
I look at the door again.
Guess what? It’s gone.
I bawl my eyes out
And my heart just melts
What you might have thought was stone.
I shriek again and again
I shout out your name
No answer.
Silence prevails.
Is this a dream?
In my head I shout.
No, just a nightmare,
Whisper my lips.
And I wait for it to end
And wait
And wait
And wait
But my life is only real.
It won’t end if I wake up
Or sleep
Like, forever.

And just when I am about to give up
I see a tunnel
A tunnel that gives me fiendish hope
Maybe it will take me to the side where you reside?
Or maybe just a side that has more light?
And I crawl and crawl
A thousand miles I travel in one
Until I come out
Until I see you.
There, you smile.
Your smile isn’t the same,
But screw it, I don’t care.
I have travelled a world for you
A world I had put between us.
No it’s just a wall, baby, you say,
But I know how it was.
Don’t stop me when I pull you closer,
Don’t stop me when I kiss you hard
You know nothing what it takes
To be a world and a wall away
All at once.
And I know I made it all by myself
And I’m sorry, I swear.
If I ever make a wall again,
It will be one between
the world and us.
I have been a wreck since forever
But I’ll heal and I will flower,
If only I’d be given a chance
To take you to Rapunzel’s tower.
And you won’t be my prisoner
The walls will have real doors,
That won’t disappear out of sight like the last one did,
And our life will again be whole.
