all my life
all i’ve known
is walls
straight into a brick facade
stone by stone
i built up these walls
blood and heartbreak
the mortar
holding together these
repelants of
a wall around my cold heart
a wall so strong
no one
could break
i wouldn’t let it topple
i wouldn’t risk
the pain
the vulnerability
i pushed love away
allowed no one to enter
for so long
i was hardened
i resisted
until you cane along
and mesmerized me
i don’t know what happened this time around
what was so different
i fell for you so hard
this ice heart i guarded so carefully
melted in an instant
your smile
your everything
broke down these walls in a moment
i feel them crumbling
deep inside
an avalanche
a little more every time
by steady
it scares me
i’ve been waiting
all my life
for someone
to break these walls
i put up
but now that it’s happening
i don’t know what to do
the feelings i’ve pent up
come pouring out
and i’m drowning
in love
and it happened so fast
you say
“don’t let ‘em fall just yet. after all, we’ve barely known each other for what, a month? it’s still too soon to let those walls come down.”
and i believe you
agree with you
with all my heart
because that’s exactly what my head is saying
but i can’t stop them
the walls have unruly minds of their own now
but i remember you once saying
“follow your heart”
and i guess
that’s what i’m doing
even though this cold, dusty heart has been locked up and guarded for so long and has no clue what love is
it’s the only sense of direction i’ve got left now
so i will follow my heart
and love you to the fullest extent i know how
and we’ll see where it takes us

whether we like it or not
the walls have crumbled
i love you.

Artist's Description

i don’t know what’s going on. but i do know that what we’ve got, it’s something different. and i know that it’s far too soon for these walls to come crashing down. but if i had felt that what we have is not what i think it is, i would have fought their avalanche more than i have.
for years, i have worked to keep these walls up. to keep people out. to keep love out. to keep true happiness out. because the end result of i those things, i knew to be pain. and i didn’t want to suffer more than i had to. but with you, i didn’t even have a chance to think about just how far i was diving in. and now, i’m a million feet of the ground, drowned in love and happiness. and i know any moment, i could plummet back to reality. and that scares the shit out of me.
i guess…i guess i just want you to understand how much you mean to me. and how much those walls meant to me.
and the fact that i Don’t know what love is. but as much that i Do know, well, that’s how much i love you. <—- haha did that even make sense? :P
