“When your heart feels heavy like a ball of lead, and the walls start to build themselves up around you once more.
You can’t help but think of how this even came to be.
The one you love didn’t love you back; you’re vulnerable once again.
You promised yourself it would never happen again.
And yet here you are, turning that lead ball into a wrecking ball to break down your walls. You had spent so much time constructing them, only to ruin them for someone else.”
