The walls that used to protect me now suffocate me. Where they used to keep harm out they now shut me in alone. And although I try my hardest, I can never escape. My thoughts and emotions are captive, held hostage by the very ones who were supposed to protect them. As my feelings writhe around trying to free themselves, they only damage me more. And I sink deeper and deeper into the grave I dug for myself.

The author's comments:

This is for anyone who ever put up emotional walls to protect themselves and ended up regretting it.

Update 01.04.16 -- I truly regret the things I published as a teen. I was young, dramatic, and lacked any sense of perspective. Please forgive me, and know that my writing has improved immeasurably.
