I once had a heart that loved so deeply,
But now it lies cold and lifeless within me.
I built a wall around it, brick by brick,
Afraid of the pain and hurt that love could inflict.
The wall grew stronger with every heartbreak,
A fortress that kept emotions at bay.
But now I find myself alone and isolated,
A heartless soul with nothing left to say.
The wall I built to protect myself,
Has left me feeling numb and disconnected.
I long for the warmth of human connection,
But the wall I built is strong and unyielding.
