This sums up the past and now the present. It was nice to find this poignant piece again.

I am a Rock

A winter's day

In a deep and dark
I am alone,
Gazing from my window to the streets below
I am a rock, 
I am an island.

I've built walls, 

A fortress deep and mighty,
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship, friendship causes pain.
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

Don't talk of love,
But I'e heard the words before,
It's sleeping in my memory.
I wont' disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me,
I am shielded in my armor,
Hiding in my room, safe within my womb.
I touch no on and no one touches me.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

And a rock feels no pain,

And an island never cries.
