    If It's Up, Your Out

    If I can keep this suffocating wall up you can never hurt me. If its up and you can't say mean things, or laugh at my dreams. If I keep my wall up you will never get the chance to hurt me. How can I go wrong there. If I keep my wall up than nobody can break me down again. Sure...

    I Block It All Out Though I Want It In So Bad.......

    There are very few people who are inside my "wall". The only reason they are there is because I knew them forever and they were there before I put a wall up. I've let a few people inside and it always ended bad. All I wanted was love and I'd let a guy in just to be used...

    decided to try and let ppl in. Now im bitter and angry because most of them have used my vulnerability against me, especially the ones who tried very hard to get me to let down my guard. I don't open up often and I may never again. It's 2016, my new year resolution is to trust...

    I Enjoy The Company Of Animals More Than I Do People

    I learned at very young age that I preferred taking care of my horse, spending time riding and showing my horse, rather than hanging around people.  I've always had a lot of friends - sincere friends. I still have friends from when I was 7-12 years old.  I would say I...

    My Wall Is Made Of Titanium

    I have a wall, built by being taken advantage of, used, tossed aside, mentally abused, tormented, judged, humiliated, crushed, unappreciated. I am a good person inside. I know I am. But I can't let anyone hurt me because I have been hurt too much. And the minute I start to let...

    They're Pretty

    I decorate my walls. I used to consider the inside of my head the most comfrotable place in the world until I started getting cabin fever. I left and regretted it and now am on the outside of my own walls and can't remember whats behind them. I'm scared to find out now-a-days.

    Bring On The Storm

    My walls are rated for hurricane strength winds.  Everyone is kept at a distance and it's just the way I like it.  Occasionally, however, someone slips past them.
