Love Can Break Down Walls - Poem by Moore Hope

I am lost in a room with people all around.
I smile at them, nod my head, but do not make a sound.
Even though there are people everywhere I still feel all alone
I climb high up in the stands above searching for the one whom makes my heart moan.

I have a mission in life and a dream to pursue,
The downfall of this action is that the other person never knew.
We are close together as close as friends can be
But I think I am in love, and I know that it is she.

She makes me happy and I really care for her, I truly do
How did I know this, because my heart told me to

You see a long time ago, my heart was stabbed many times
I did not fight back for I thought that the fault was all mine.

However eventually I realized that the love for me was all wrong,
That the abuse I was taunted with was not a lovely dance song.

This verbal and mental abuse helped me to build up a wall.
To hide myself from getting hurt I locked my heart up in a cold stall.
Deep in the cavity chest it did beat
But not for the love that was the cause of my defeat.

For many years this wall stood up so strong
But then one day you came along.

Drop by drop, the bricks were let down
And my ice cold heart began to melt and make a new sound.

I felt warming and desire, feelings I have never felt before.
Butterflies fluttering in my stomach every time I saw you at the door.

There were even times that I could not say a word no matter how hard I tried
For if I spoke what I really wanted to say to you, then I would have had to lied.

So I do not say a word, for I don't want to lose you as my friend.
For if I ever did that then my life would definitely have no meaning to the end.
