This shell I built around my heart

This shell I built around my heart
This protection from the pain
To keep the pain of love away
By keeping them locked within

These armament’s that I built to keep
Prying hands and hearts away
Now serves it’s desired purpose
Though I wish it were not there

The barrier now serves as a shadow
One that I fight to light up
Yet this shell must be broken from
The shadows deep within

So now my love his burning strong
In a place I can not feel
Yet soon it will burst free
From these confines of my soul
