Castle walls

Brick by Brick , steal plate by steal plate , stone by stone , rock by rock, weld by weld , screw by screw, nail by nail, piece by piece. Pieces of me pieces of my life pieces of life step by step breath by breath choice by choice life by life built the walls that make the very empty castle that kept me safe in a place I did not dwell a wall a choice to keep very tall and strong until I breath the air that was you and I stood by watching as the love we shared together and seperately snatched that wall piece by piece away trying to make room for a song that played oh so loud even in the places we could not make up in our minds danced to. leading our souls back to back so very much alive creating life where life should have always been and yet had died and been forgotten behind the many castle walls built to feel safe in a world in which we create the chaos...
