Walls - Poem by Brian Hinckley

Walls are built
to keep others out.
Though our walls are built
to keep the pain inside.

I'm here to help you
tear down your walls.
My ram is love for you
and I will breach sooner or later.

When I say I'll be there,
I will.
When I say I'll love you,
I will.
With every word and gesture I make,
your walls begin to crack.
With every kiss I give you,
your walls begin to fall.

When they fall and tears roll down your cheeks,
and the pain comes flooding out,
You can fall into my arms and cry,
because walls aren't made to last forever,
not in the face of my love for you.

    Just a question, was the word 'aim' not 'ram'? (second stanza) .
    The idea is very good, 'walls' being a common human defense mechanism, and the words you used were effective in conveying the message.
