He tore down my defenses...

I build fences.

I wall myself in

And protect.

I build fences.

And with each day, week, or month

That you are gone,

My barrier grows stronger, impregnable.

I build fences.

You show up and try to enter,

And find a fortress.

I build fences.

You knock, pound, and ram,

And are told to move on,

Yet you do not.

I build fences.

You slowly make your way through

And find my damaged and untended heart.

I build fences.

You do not walk away

Or cease your mission

To salvage my wounded soul.

I build fences.

You allow no retreat

Or hiding behind walls.

I build fences.

You tear them down.
