you are the great wall
built to keep people out
but I wonder-
did you realize that no one would ever be allowed to leave?

you keep your memories alive
feeding the fire of your past
dwelling upon the things that can never be again
and I'm here
offering you the future
holding out a hand for you to grasp;

your fortress has been up too long
and you've forgotten how to unlock the gate
but I keep running-
searching
looking for a way in
looking for the key

Always I am banging my head
against the wall
around your heart
Always I am begging for a chance to be let in-

I like this one for personal reasons. Let's just say I can identify.

This strikes way too close to home for me. Do we know each other?

Nice work...kind of reminds me of an old song by The Gratefull Dead....the title escapes me now(it is a womans name), but the last two lines are:
"no one may enter,
"cause no one may leave"

Sounds like someone i know...but you couldn't possibly be referring to me...so i'll just congratulate you on finding the right words to express the walls of steel that don't let us in...
