layer by stony layer

she fashioned alone

a fortress like no other

year by lonely year

she retreats from pain until

joy can not find her

day by numbing day

sanctuary becoming

solitary hell

crack by gleaming crack

she wakes to find hope creeping

crawling across walls

weakened by her growing will

to reveal her truth

layer by stony layer
