The Invisible Wall of Silence

I feel the creaks and groans emanating from my weary soul.
I suffer the pain from cracks and fissures running through my heart.
Persistent efforts to scale the wall have failed.
Scars I wear on the inside no one can see or understand.
Days of retreat I've spent licking and healing my emotional wounds.
Only to emerge to face the wall again.
An infinite insurmountable wall.
A timeless, everlasting, never ending, barrier.
The barricade that remains intact to keep me away.
And always at a distance from people, and faces, and voices, and truth.
