Defense mechanism

Towering walls of strength and power
Defend my confused heart
There is no gate, no latch, no key
These walls refuse to part

But something lurks outside the walls
A weight i cant shake free
Pulling, prodding, stretching me thin
Till whats left is barely me

And what once was one
Is now two, now three
And peering over my solid walls
The shadows are all i can see

Ill offer myself like a platter of food
To be passed around and shared
Snatching and tearing they’ll swallow me hole
Each just wanting to know that I cared.
