0239 These Walls [25 February 1999]

I am so afraid
To let myself go.
To let others
Behind these walls.

It seems hard
And yet so easy
To let someone
Into my shelter.

Yet I am so terrified
Of losing
That place
I have carved for myself.

I am so afraid
To love you.
And afraid
Of myself.

I do not trust
Even the passions
Of my heart
That longs for free will.
