Damn this wall that surrounds me
That protects me from the pain
I built it many years ago
And now I take the blame
It use to help me wake each day
And see the glory of the light
Now I stand alone in my world
With nothing more in sight
Damn this wall that surrounds me
I want to make it go away
No one wants to climb it
Or fight it each and every day
It keeps me locked in this hole
For no one else to see
The pain and misery I feel
Oh why does it have to be
Damn this wall that surrounds me
I want to feel the love once more
For someone to get close to me
And open up this door
Hand me a hammer, a saw, an axe
I want so badly to break through
Just to feel his arms around me
And to feel the love so true
Damn this wall that surrounds me
I yearn to be set free
Tired of this loneliness
My tear stained face that has come to be
So here I sit and cry
Not knowing where I should be
Tired of this darkness
Damn this wall that surrounds me!!!

 I do not love you for being perfect.....
I love you for being perfect for me!!

This poem puts me back 21/2 years ago, I had put myself into the deepest/darkest hole I could find, with unclimbable walls.
I didn't think there was a way out "ever".
So that's when I started to write.
I found out that they can't climb in you must climb out. Use your writings to latter upon, take a step up, soon you will be over the walls.
this is a great poem, and a great way of saying ?? I'm ready.
Love ya kid. haha

 I howl a mournful song, that echos within my chambered heart, for all to read? nay for all to feel.

Break down the walls hon, just like Joel said, inch by inch, brick by brick, open your world to love again, it's worth the battle scars to find true love!  *hugs* and strength to you my friend

been there,done that....and i'm still stuck in my black lagoon...oh well... It's hard to tell if building boundaries around yourself hurts or helps....sometimes they do both,either way it's a pain in the butt. But this is an excellent poem,i really love this's the best.

You have described my situation perfectly in this poem, I know all too well the pain that you are expressing.  Well written and a bittersweet read for me.  Unfortunately, I have no advice to give to you upon tearing the walls down because I have yet to do so too.  I do hope that you take Joel's advice however.  I wish you the best!

Take care,

Wow.  Say's it all, doesn't it. Good, passionate howl.  I really like the line

"Damn this wall that surrounds me!"

I think that could qualify by itself as one of the best and shortest poems ever.

Stay with it....

Isn't part of the wall coming down that we must first realize it is there??  I think you see these walls now so plainly, feel it's weight, and feel the helplessness to tear it down yourself?  I can relate with you.....I believe these walls fall when we get beyond "our" ability to keep them standing any longer.  Great poem you've shared with us, with lot's of hard hitting truth!

Enjoyed reading built the wall and you are the one that gets to tear it need now only choose the you say hammer, saw, and ax.  If you're in a hurry try some dynamite.  Reminded me of the day when they started tearing down the Berlin wall.   James

it took me awhile to find this poem but i am glad i did.  this is so true.  i built such a wall that i couldnt see who really cared about me.  and now it is to late to go back.  i hope one day i can tear it all down.  or have someone help me.  great work my friend.  i wish i could tear down that wall for you.

Do you bury me when Iím gone? Do you teach me while Iím here? Just as soon as I belong, Then itís time I disappear...
