“Brick by brick, this barrier surrounding
my heart is beginning to suffocate me.”
There’s a disconnect in my soul. Can you feel it, too? I’ve been hiding away, wallowing in my own misery. I’ve been erecting walls to protect me from getting hurt. And though a precious few already knew their way in, I still try to keep everyone at arm’s length. Brick by brick, this barrier surrounding my heart is beginning to suffocate me. I need more. I need that connection. I need to feel like I’m free, and not this caged creature wondering what happened. I need more. I need to be free again.
