I see you everyday
I want you to walk my way
but I have to push you away, and stay tall
Because I need to protect my heart
through my wonderwall.
I watch you shine all the time
No matter what other people say.
I want you to be in life
But my wonderwall pushes you away.
It blocks out all that I feel
So that nobody can hurt me.
I wonder if what I feel is real.
You could get in if you tried
But you have to earn your part
Cuz the key is hard to find,
For it lies deep within my heart.
I can give you a chance
But you have to earn it
So that i know you wont let me fall
And after all.......
My heart……..

    I really enjoyed reading it, lovely and sensuous, I loved the metaphor in the last line, loved the end rhyme and the smooth flow, beautifully written, well done
