Brick Building

I can’t stop building.
I try really hard but
I can’t .
I want to believe you but
I can’t .
I want to have faith in you but
I can’t.
You’ve lead me down the wrong path .
You’ve turned your back one, two too many times.
You broke me time and time again.

I shut you out.

How can I let you back in?
All the pain you’ve caused,
How can I erase it all and forgive?
How can I feel safe enough to give you back parts of me that never healed?
I can’t .
I can’t regain the trust that you decided to throw away,
Trying to break down the walls that I’ve built so high.
I thought this would be easy but
Unfortunately
I can’t.
I can’t stop building.
