I know I know what its like

I know to reach for you

At night.

You’re not there

or are you?

 

The Anger, the fear

I know

I know what its like

Hanging, clinging

The fear on my back, pushing me

Down

I am the Mason

 

When you are gone

(All the time now)

I create for you

I create you

Inside my brick tower, a version

of you is here

with me

The fear is not

here

I’m safe. I can reach for you

(the real you)

Outside of the tower

But you’re farther, everyday father.

And I am safe

 

You’re all fools, I scream

Inside.

The shoddy construction is part of the plan.

The fear, my only fried

helped me to build these walls

Brick by brick

 

But it crumbles with each breath

I take --

And you take

Because you see, lover

I’m no good with the plaster --

It crumbles

with the slightest

Touch

of my hand.

 

Imagine --

what would happen

if you touched it

with yours.
