You can try to build walls to keep people out… Walls that no-one ever climbs because they’re too high… Walls that nobody can tunnel under because they run too deep…
But one day someone’s going to break through to you.
They won’t come crashing through… you’re too impenetrable for that. No, this will be subtle… So subtle you may not even realize it’s happening until it’s too late.
This person will chip away at your barriers… day after day. They’ll use whatever they can – a smile, a joke, a friendly gesture… until bit by bit they find all your little fractures and begin to break through. It will take them time – so much time you feel sure they’ll give up and move on. But for whatever reason this person will keep trying to reach you no matter how slow their progress is or how worthless you think their cause may be.
Because this person loves you; utterly and completely…. Without any care as to what dark secrets they’ll find when they get through your defenses… They just want to be close to you. They’ll happily scratch away at your walls for hours and emerge triumphant with nothing more than a tiny bit of stone – Happy because they’re just that tiny bit closer to you today than they were yesterday.
One day their love is going to get through to you… and you can’t fight it…
You can’t keep love out……Ranata Suzuki
