My Wall

by MaSkEdSoUl   Jan 26, 2006

**Couldnt Think Of A Title, But I Tried My Best, If You Have Any Suggestions, Feel Free To Tell Me**

Feeling Alone,
In A Place Where You Think People Don't Care,
Knowing Deep Down Inside,
You're Only Isloating Yourself

Wanting To Open Up,
Express Your Feelings,
but All you Think About Is People Laughing,
Laughing At What You'll Say,
Laughing At You,
Thinking You'll Seem Crazy in Their Eyes.

Knowing People May Feel The Same Way You Do,
You're Still Afraid,
Afraid To Open Up.

Putting A Wall Up,
Trying To Block Out The Pain,
But Not Knowing That Once You Put That Wall up,
You're Also Blocking Out The Joy.

Once You open Up And Tear Down That Wall,
You'll Seize To Know That You Had Nothing To be Afraid Of After All.

(I've changed the title once so far, before it was "Knowing"! Tell me if this is a better title for it.)

    I like this piece you wrote; it takes someone or something in you to tear that wall down. It's so hard!

    Very good poem, very good imagery, strong emotions, the flow was off sometimes but it wasn't too bad. Thanks again for the comments, keep up the fantastic work you're doing.

    I am in this situation all the time. I am always to afriad of what others might think of me to tell them how I really feel even the ones closest to me. Its really hard to make someone understand you when you are to fearful of getting hurt by someone you love and respect. A great poem keep writing I love your stuff :)

    Very good poem, i think one of the resons so many of us suffer from deppression or loneliness is because we put up walls to block out hurt, for many of us have experinced it before....5/5
