Poetry by Linda Allen

Fences

 

Fences make good neighbors, but fences are better for your enemies.

You cannot forever make me cry.

I will put a fence between you and I

A fence so tall and tight that even you will never get through

 

Fences

I need a fence

To keep you out

Fences

Β To block the pain

To keep you from making my heart hard and cold

Fences

To keep you from making me colder inside

To keep you away from my heart

Fences

Fences

So I can finally be rid of you

Fences

That keeps out hate and only allows love into my heart

Fences

To protect my heart and soul from those who seek to harm

Fences

Fences

To help save me

To help save my heart and soul

 

Fences make good neighbors, but fences are better for your enemies.

You cannot forever make me cry.

I will put a fence between you and I

A fence so tall and tight that even you will never get through

 

Fences

That protect everyone

Fences
