Walls Split Apart

Life's turning in a direction
I don't want it to go
Losing the one I had
just to gain the ones that are close
I fake my way through 
all the nights of hurt
I'm running away now
staying with a race I know
I see the joy I see the growth
but no ladder to get there
I'm thrown in among the crowd
my tongue stays quite
to hold my emotion
When I'm poked and prodded
I just explode
I wish to be alone 
I wish to stay calm
But that's not allowed in this system
That's how I fall trapped to 
my own emotions
trapped where I don't want to be
I'm told give HIM a chance
I don't know how to do that 
confined in my room still 
wishing how things were
Not being able to move forward
even after all these years
The walls are up 
keeping my emotions in
separating me from where I should be
and I'm not able to let anyone in

    I enjoyed reading your poetry this morning Corinne. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am going to see if I can write something for a couple contests this weekend. Hope you find the inspiration to do the same. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Love, Carol
