Stone Mason

The Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China

I built a wall around you to
keep you safe to
protect you
from imagined dangers
I built it longer –
others could look but
not touch your beauty or
feel your tenderness
could not hear the song in
your soul or taste the
lusciousness of you
I built it higher –
you withered
you grew suspicious
and held your secrets close
I built a wall around you and
you seeped out through
fissures cleft by time
until my wall crumbled
and you began to thrive
