Suspicions rise, never trusting.
Nervous looks and wary glances over your shoulder.
Screaming words that never really mean anything,
Silence that says too much.
Tug and pull, arms-length, never let them in.
The built up walls didn't want to crumble, no matter what you did. Closing off, self-imposed lonely.
Scared of what it would take to crack.
Left wondering if any of it could ever be taken back.
