This Wall by Tadeusz Rozewicz

Beyond this wall
that we build together
day in and day out
mortaring in the word
of silence
Beyond this wall
we can not go

we are bricked in
by our own hands
we are dying of longing
we hear beside us
the movement of the other
we hear sighs
we call for help

even tears vanish
deep within our bodies
