brick by brick

i usually have a wall that reaches the sky, but you, you really made it disappear. 

there was something about you that really made me take down that wall, brick by brick.

but as i took that last brick out, you took my heart and threw it at a pack of wolves to eat. 

right then and there, i was hit, like a train on a track.

for once in my life, i was hurt by a boy. 

a silly boy, took my heart and crushed it. 

he said, "maybe in the future"

what he meant, "we'll never be together"

so i say, thank you. 

thank you for making me build that wall again, brick by brick. 

you made my realize that i will fall, but i just have to get up again. 

thank you.

Though it is hard for people who have felt this hurt, jsut as you have, I found this poem beautiful. It expresses the vulnerability of even the people who have built these walls. I love your ability to express it though I'm sure it was difficult. The most powerful line is the lesson you learned; "you made my realize that i will fall, but i just have to get up again."
Thank you for sharing this piece.
