Putting the bricks back in place.
Rebuilding the Wall

Crawling into a corner
to curl up.
Begging for the loneliness
to leave me be.

I shouldn't have
let you in.

Your view of what
I should be--
unrealistic.

It was your failing,
not mine.

Time is for healing,
they say
(whoever "they" are).

Emotions are tools
for learning.
I sigh as I replace the
bricks around my heart.

Never again!
