A Wall Too Strong

Here’s an oldie! It’s one of the first poems I wrote after I got bit by the writing bug. Luckily I’ve improved since then  (at least I hope I have).

Lucy, don’t shed your tears for me

I have no heart

Can’t you see?

I live in a world of stone

It’s to cold for your trails of gold

So forget me as I hide

And know you’ll never get inside

I built the wall too strong

It’s of my own design

Made to keep love outside


So hurry, Lucy, leave

The snow is coming, go in peace

Forget you ever knew me

Flee this cold, this unrepentant snow

Go follow the sun, it knows how to love

Leave me to my crimes

To these hollow bones of mine

Run, my dear, and never look behind.
