is not just being alone
is being surrounded by people
but set apart by secrets
I smile at the wife
I smile at the neighbour
Inside im numb
The secret holds me in its shadow
Secret of a snatched childhood
Memories of pain and shame
This is the secret that builds walls
The hands on the clock move counting time
but for me time has stood still
Loneliness has stood still

Seven Arrows,

That feeling of being set apart by secrets and painful shameful memories does exactly what you describe: it builds walls. All the more reason to talk about the secrets, at least among those we trust. I'm really glad you are able to do that here.

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)

very true... your words are from your heart. I understand the feelings and think how different life would be if we didn't feel alone. Keep moving on...

Facing the struggle makes you strong.
