Behind these walls

Walls of a building, structure
barrier, defense or division
keeping something in or out
a screen, monstrosity
feature of varied size
built for a reason
perhaps something to hide
or show off like shop or museum

Behind these walls
there is a person that dwells
Within that person there are walls
specifically built barriers, defences
that hold things in or out
guarding the heart mind and soul
protecting deepest depths of the unknown
Secrets and treasures precious and personal

Maintain them well
for once they come crumbling
tumbling down
Who knows what lurks within
Nice or nasty
yours to decide
But do not trespass or pry
for you may not like what it is you find
