Walls"Walls" by Ilsa Kasmar
My name is Ronnie. And I don't like people.
Don't get me wrongI don't hate everyone. I do have a few friends, like my roommate, Kayla. Her brother, Gene, seems okay too.
But ever since my Dad left, I've had a hard time trusting people. Once I realized that the people you love the most are also the ones who can hurt you the most, it's kind of hard to let people in. You build up a sort of emotional armor, walls that you put up around yourself as protection.
Mom got remarried to a great guy, though, and my now-adopted father has helped heal some of the damage my biological father did. (Sound confusing? It is.)
But I still have a hard time trusting people most of the time. It's hard to take down walls that I've had since I was four.
Why am I telling you this? Because this little prologue is going to explain a lot about why I reacted the way I did in the story I'm about to tell.
Have I given you enough clues to pique your interest? Will your attention span hold
Nervous MovementYou're a dime a dozen in a sea of billions.
Individuality has no significance in numbers so vast.
And while this fact makes looking forward hard
we can't keep living in the past.
You're a nervous movement in a freeze frame scene.
Steady hands won't help hold up such a fragile act.
And while you take your time keeping character
you fake what you can't take back.
With nothing more than a thought we form our actions
and this is where we extinguish the lie they tried to invent.
The lie that we painted our lives without passion
well conclusions are useless with no attempt to commence.
You're a song I can't name stuck in my head.
I've listened to you before and probably will again.
And while I can hum the melody all day long waiting
for it to hit me I still won't know where you've been.
You're a gust that has never changed direction.
Nothing can touch you you're only felt as you brush skin.
And while you can't be stopped nothing lasts
nothing escapes time not even the wind.
Keep in Touch!
