The Walls of My Prison by AndromedaMarine

These are the walls of my prison
You've locked me away
The walls that can't hold me
Walls you promised won't stay

But I've been here forever,
And I'm not telling a lie
The walls shouldn't hold me
The walls will not let me die

These are the walls of my prison
And you hold the key
The walls that have mocked me
Walls that won't let me see

I've been here for too long
I'm hoping for light
The walls will get smaller
The walls staunch my fight

These are the walls of my prison
And you hold me in
The walls that have comfort
Walls letting you win

I may be in safety
As I'm locked away
But these walls are my prison
And I want now to stay

These are the walls of my prison
My ignorant bliss
The walls that contain me
The walls that I'll miss

The walls of my prison
Hold comfort and peace
The walls, they are gentle
Walls whose breathing won't cease

These are the walls of my rescue
My savior, my love
The walls that surround me
The walls hovering above

These are the walls of my friend
The one saving my life
The walls are his body
The walls that blocked the knife

I breathe him, I feel him
He's keeping me alive
The walls that surround me
Walls, that with me, survive

The walls whisper comfort
But you won't let me go
The walls know I'm in danger
But you won't let me know

These are the walls of my lover
The walls of my heart
The walls that would die
If we were torn apart

These are the walls of my prison
The walls that I know
The walls that are called 'John'
The walls that block the blow

You hold me even tighter
As you keeps me unharmed
Soon the walls will be real
Soon you won't be alarmed

We return home eventually
And you will hold me near
I know that you're injured
But for me was your fear

These are the walls of my prison
The prison I want to stay in
The man who protected
Whose feelings, hidden, have been

They were the walls of my prison
The walls of my heart
The walls of my savior
The walls that won't let me depart.
