The fortress

paris-montreux-jazz-festival-2012-038_1024

Impenetrable

Walls so high to protect me

Even from myself

 

Deep in the basement

In cobwebs behind a door

Is the hiding place

 

Of secrets that are

Shrouded behind a dark veil

I dare not expose

 

Even to myself

Shielding me from destruction

If it is revealed

 

The fragile essence

Of guarded imperfections

You will never see

 

They are pounding now

On the doors to be released

To help set me free

 

I am not alone

I see it so clearly now

Your lock and your key

 

Let us take the steps

Find that hidden place of fear

Torment and sorrow

 

The war is over

Time has come to surrender

And break down the walls

 

Freed from the fortress
