Block By Block

Have you ever felt
so closed off
It’s as if you’ve been building a wall
between yourself, and the rest of the world
You can huff & puff
all day long
but your never going to get through
no matter what you do
I’ll out build your advances
So catch a clue
Things turn on a dime around here
and this construction crew will work nonstop
Block by block
As I listen to the clock
Right now
My mind
feels like a sealed envelope
I’m trapped inside
Postage applied
Theirs no chance of you getting back inside
Not at this time

    man, did you tell my story...I'm the type of guy that builds walls all the time. nice write, honest and raw feelings. nice parallel to construction and the emotional walls, or at least that's how I read it..

    Hey. Thanks for your awesome comment, and yes you read into the piece the way it was supposed to be perceived. Even the title double entendre.
