Building Skyscrapers - Poem by Cierra Lauren

Building walls
Brick by brick
Just scratching the surface of the pain we feel
Little cracks in the pain
Allow us to see what might be
But we've been hurt
We've been lied to
Unable to trust
Because we
Trusted people with our hearts
Just to watch them be crushed
In the hands of people we loved the most
Hiding behind a strong exterior
Breaking down behind closed doors
Praying for someone better
Hoping that if we give our hearts away
one more time
Maybe we wont get hurt
Maybe we’ll actually be loved
Maybe they can give us what we've been looking for
Maybe they can help us
Pick up the broken pieces
Put us back together again
Maybe they can love us
And break down that wall
But maybe not...
