You took down the wall I built around me
brick by brick, slowly
Then you grabbed them all and barricaded me out
closed yourself off
and now you're gone.

I wonder if they see something in my eyes shift when I think of him.
Maybe the sadness that takes over my whole body shows?
Perhaps it should be tattooed all over my skin?
But chances are it seeps out in waves anyway, like it did yesterday.
