When the Walls

She begged me to be but I couldn't
She called me her own but I really can't
I spent all this time building up walls
And I damn well expected them to last
But they won't
Because she is the one who demands my heart
And it is wrapped up in the past
I cannot bear her mercy
Nor her kind words
Because they just want me to be hers
Forever needing
And I've been there before
And its a curse
Or worse
The walls are there for a purpose
I'll be damned when they are fallen down
Don't think I can be saved by concrete
Nor steel nor wood nor stone
But I can't bear this life alone
So down they come
Fall and fall again
I am unable to stop it now
So I am going to be away
But my flesh here will remain
