Walls I had built up
to keep you distanced, the hurt
I had been scarred.
You never had seen, never had noticed,
the pieces of me falling apart.
Crumbling fast, with each fallen tear.
Running was all I could think of,
Fast, faster, fastest.
I left, my trail silent,
Invisible to your eyes.
To myself I kept…
for a long time I could not immerse myself in the beauty of the world.
Not just yet.
One day, I will. I told myself constantly.
Once I don’t hurt, once the pain vanishes.
The ghost of you followed me,
the haunts of my past were haunting my present and future.
Again I ran. Faster than before.
Stares grasped my body, but my mind was sure.
I had to get away from you,
Or never would I let you go.
Moving on is hard,
distancing the closeness.
My walls now have cracks, holes;
from the cannons you had shot on them.
I am now strong, stronger than before.
The walls are not needed.
For i have brought them down with your surrender.
You are gone. And I am okay.
