I stand watching them trying to climb the walls I’ve built
Dangling one foot over the edge,
While they beg me not to jump
And I laugh at their naivety.
Will you take me softly
Or rip me competely apart?
Would you be slightly interested
In this war torn heart?
Then one comes along and shrugs at my defenses
Walking right through the traps and barricades
Then right up to me he comes and begins talking
As if I had known him my entire life.
Now I need a taste
Though I’m too afraid to ask.
Where do we go from here?
Now I can’t find my mask.
Don’t wonder how he got here
I keep trying to look around to see how in the hell to get him out
Which way did he come? How did he not die?
What in the world was keeping him from giving up?
Hadn’t prepared for an intruder
Does he want to stay?
Will anything I say or do
Get him to go away?
He acts like he knows this place
But I built this shit myself.
He hadn’t been here before
Yet somehow this is all too familiar.
I shrug my shoulders, nod my head
I guess I’ll just try it.
May know in my heart I love him
But my head will forever be defiant.
