alone rather than together
surrender rather than struggle
radio silence rather than contact
a decision that perhaps holds up
when I view it from afar
but when I take it into my hands
it falls apart
maybe because it isn’t mine.
but still there is nothing I can do
because it was always yours
yes, I built a wall
a towering structure that I hated
but I always hoped we could one day
tear it down
and I don’t know how to stop.
