I’LL ALWAYS TRY TO REACH YOU  

I don’t know where you go 

when you’re away from me.

One minute you’re here 

and the next 

there’s a mile wide wall between us 

built with pebbles and stones 

of misplaced anger and insecurity.

I test the wall’s strength with jokes

and try to chip away at the concrete with

sweet words and a reassuring hand.

  1. I appreciate reading this today. It fits with my mindset for friends too. Especially a dear friend who just placed all her walls up and wants to cut everyone out of her life because her heart hurts too much for anyone to be in it. I am scared for her, but I have hopes for a better tomorrow.
