Unknowing to me did this process begin
Tearing away years of tenderness
Unveiling a mast of unnatural feelings
All new, all unwanted
Impending still against all efforts to shun it
Crept in like a lion
Engulfing
Enrapturing
Taking over a place once saved for prayers of Thankfulness
Frozen stiff
A bitter sting bites your flesh as it is welded to my own
There is no mending
The icy walls which shield my heart


 "Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads." ~Henry David Thoreau

Hi, I enjoyed this poem, and was intrigued by the last two lines: "There is no mending the icy wall which shield my heart".  
Interesting!

Hey u,
great job Sherry but I know your heart isn`t cold.
Quite the opposite  
You are a very warm,caring,sweet person and anyone that know`s you would say the same.
I think you have once again done a great job
with your writing.
Keep up the Good work U.

Inriguing the style you write with
But a heart can be warmed up again
all it takes is love
Thank you

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Seems to be familar.  I know this feeling all too well.  Very well done.
