i keep walls built up inside of me
and thorns have grown around my heart
to protect itself from any unwanted affections
to stop it from giving too much, too soon,
because that's what i do

i am afraid of falling
because you could never trust the arms
that promised would be there to catch you
the cliff is so high and the pit so deep,
and the huge gap in between
terrifies me

so this is what I do
i push people away
but once I've realized this mistake
they'd have been pushed too far,
and it's too late.
