NaPoWriMo Day 5 – Hide Behind

Hide Behind

In my dreams he visits me
For I cannot hide behind myself
Barriers I built so high
Under the guise of protection
All they do is wound deeply
As years pass and barriers thicken
Ephemera building up, filling out
In my dreams he visits me
Only place where I am free
Feel though as if I am haunted
When wake comes to rip me
Asunder from his soothed embrace
Back beyond the barrier to face
Harsh reality make it my own
Cannot abide the intrusion on
Its hell-bent invasion of all
In my dreams he visits me
For I cannot hide behind myself
