Many people

try to be “cool”

by acting aloof when

their hearts flutter,

and they cannot utter

what they want, for then

a wall is broken, and they’ll feel

foolish. But that’s just as well-

even more so, because the one

they wished to tell now knows.

An iron wall,

a barricade,

a suit of armor

that doubles as a mask.

This is what we wear.

We put them around our minds.

We find comfort in our defenses-

blank-faced, revealing little

or nothing at all.

No one can see the fear,

then.

The fear of being hurt.

If we don’t let anyone past these boundaries,

we think we’ll never be harmed.

But the truth is,

they trap us

in our fear.
