you raise your eyes
and desolation all around
surprises you

too busy holding me
at arm's reach
to see
where you are going

you speak to me
when I am alone
deep in the labyrinth

I built these walls as a child
to hide and protect myself

walls of glass

you speak to me
through the walls
and smile

no one is speaking to me

it is such work to search and find myself
again within these walls

try to return and stay connected
by a thread
the center holds
return to the world

most people sense the walls
they do not touch me
they avoid

I think they sense the monsters
I have found and love
and care for
and heal

my
monsters

you speak through the walls
and smile

but I know you are a liar
from the start

I turn away
once twice thrice
and then I speak to you

and you hold me at arm's reach

I let you hold me at arm's reach
and I listen
you silence me when I speak
so I go silent

the maze of walls around me stands

each time you lie
I know
new walls rise from your lies
you take three turns away

I watch you
I try to speak
you hold me at arm's reach

turn and turn and turn again

you leave the maze
I watch you turning and turning
in the wilderness

I can't see the walls
you are building for yourself

they are not mine
they are yours

I said goodbye
you weren't listening
holding me at arm's reach

I don't know how
or if
you will find yourself
at the center of your maze
I don't know how
or if
you will find your way back

you raise your eyes
desolation all around
surprises you

at arm's reach

I can't keep quiet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeQD9QwYC5M
