I observe you from afar and what I’ve learned is you are a person who has to put up a shield and hide certain things just to get through the day.
You are kind and sweet but certain things in your life has left you bitter and angry and as much as you want to fight the battle feels like a losing one.
The misery you feel just keeps growing day by day and you no longer smile like you used to.
You are broken and I so want to help you but, like everyone else, I am on the other side of the wall you put up to protect yourself.
The pain I see it flick every now and then through your sad and blank brown eyes, I want to so bad to erase that pain you feel for once and for all.
Maybe one day you will let me in and then things will be different between us and you will smile again and the wall will be down at least for me.
