I built a wall between you and me
Because it's easier that way
A wall of untold stories and stolen glances

Four walls, in my mind,
There is a place,
Covered behind doors and doors and doors,

Can you help me tear down the wall in my mind? I can hear you there on the other side of my wall, but I cannot reach you. I desperately crave for your love and care, but I can't seem to allow you to come through the wall. The(more)
