I pull up my walls,

He holds me while he waits for me to talk,

I tell myself not to keep up the walls,

Eventually I begin to talk,

Eventually I break the walls.


He never gets angry,

He always remains patient,

I’m so thankful that he doesn’t get angry,

I’m so thankful that he remains patient,

I am able to open up because he’s patient and doesn’t get angry.


Yes, I can choose to not open up,

Yet I know how bad that would be for our relationship,

Thus, it’s because I truly care about my relationship that I open up,

I put my fear and pride aside for my relationship,

In return I save my relationship and feel much better because I opened up.
