My Heart Apart

A hard decision that comes along in most lifetime.
"I miss you,"
Three words that tear,
My heart apart.

As you utter those words,
I feel the barriers around,
My heart crumble.

I want to let you in,
However, I know that if I do it will leave,
My heart devastated.

Fighting against my instinct,
I build my walls back up, making,
My heart immune to your attacks.
