communication

03/26/2017

of the walls we built
    invisible
    yet rough to the touch
one made of silence
    although you could hear
    through the hot water
    pressure
    that i was not
and another made of secret
    words you shared
    with another
    to make you feel
    secure
the one that grew the highest
    was built of those
    Saturday morning dreams
    of evolving blueprints
    exotic gardens and
    conversations
that I knew were possible
between two lovers
    (if your interest could be
    diverted
    before 11:45pm
when the time was no longer
    ideal
    to ask what
    was so important)
my insecurities
    will come and go
    my nature, i cannot change
and one fault is that
    while i can describe
    each stone block
    and how it came to be
i cannot see your walls
    or why you built them.
