Stone and Steel

My time of laughter has turned to tears.
I was surprised that the walls had collapsed
I had many secrets locked away.
A brief moment of negligence filled me with fear.

I am frustrated as I try to rebuild my life.
I lost the barriers I built around me.
They could not protect me this time.

I have been living in a world of stone and steel.
How will I ever find the fragrance of hope?
The sterile world that I am in has destroyed me.

The reality of my life is clear now.
I have starved myself of love.
My heart is empty and full of pain.

I must go on without knowledge of the truth.
Until I escape my city, I shall not rest peacefully.
