The Fortress Part II

cont' from Part I

Are you ever truly going to find the courage to open that door
When keeping it shut only hurts you even more
If you continue to stay there without coming out
The morale of the story without a shadow of a doubt
Is that your heart and soul will soon self destruct
Behind that lonely Fortress you chose to construct

    A very profound ending, Told ya the ending can be me totally me. I built walls to keep folks out. Funny slowly i've managed to knock some down to many peeps want to get in. I say the hell with it, "MAY I HELP YOU" the one knocking. Lovely deep and all that good stuff that makes a good poet a poet, really enjoyed to the fullest thanks for the invite. Welcome to read at any request,..p.d

    Wow...we were definitley in the same head space when we wrote these huh? Its frustrating to feel for someone who distances themself so they can feel lonely and wallow in the pain they create. Is it so hard to want someone who wants you (or anyone) back?? Beautiful write-keep it up!! Much love, Steve P.S. Check your soupmail = )
