What Did You Construct


What did you construct?
Was it a wall to keep me out?
Or a castle to keep me in?
Or a drawbridge to keep us connected?

Was it a fantasy?
Or was it a folly?
Was it a tower with a secret trap door?
Or was it your vanity that kept me away?

Safe behind your walled construction
Safe within your castle closure
Safe within your locked tower
Leave the drawbridge lowered for me

Let us build our own walls
Let us build our own castle
Let us build our own drawbridge
Let us build our own tower

Or is it fantasy?
Or is it folly?
Am I forever to be outcast?
Kept at a distance?

By you
And your walls of pain
