Not Allowed

I can't go on this way
when each and every day
brings only pain
and echoes of a wrath
too strong to bear

I feel you standing there
so lost and all alone
yet every texture, every tone
the very strength of your emotion
has formed into a shield
that keeps me far away from you

Endlessly I question why
I search for answers far and wide
yet the only answer found
lies within you
while it is just there
that I am not allowed to enter . . .
