  i never intended for this to happen
but the pain brought it upon me
and it was my only defense
to build this wall
brick by brick
each painful memory
every broken promise
all his spoken words
they bind my prison
closing me in
keeping you out
never allowing me to feel again
to know things can change
that it's not all the same
and with my hands
i scratch at my past
to see the light that you bring
pushing aside what was
stone by stone
breaking apart this solitude inside me
to see what it is that you offer
to feel you
allowing you to feel me
attempting to see that it is not the past that chooses
but me

(hrodriguez - 1999)
