Erin is a writer and content creator from Georgia, United States. She loves coffee, books, and puppies.
There's always a wall between us,
Even when we're near,
I hate to tell you,
But I'm the one who put it there,
There's too much inside I don't want you to see,
So I try to keep you out and away from me,
But you are starting to turn the tide,
Like a tidal wave you cover me with your love,
And show me I have nothing to hide.
Love & Loss by Mattia Cupelli

ValKaras: Thank you! You completely understood the message I was trying to convey.

Erin - What a wonderful piece of poetry! So elegantly and softly touching our cautious reluctance to open up completely to those we love, as if concerned that the person would "possess" a part of our personality that we always considered available for "our eyes only".
