The real me

The real me

I'm afraid 
I'm afraid of loving somebody 
he might be scared off by the real me 
he might think I'm too crazy 
might think I have too many demons to face 
so I stay inside of my own world
so I stay to myself 
I hide in the shadows 
I hide behind my mask 
not wanting to get hurt 
not wanting to face them
it's why I have walls 
it's why I have demons on guard
I'm sorry I'm too much 
I'm sorry I scare you away 
this is the end 
this is the end of my happiness

Being Me

Aww¬† so sad!¬† The right person will love you for who you are...warts and all ūüėȬ† If they don't then they are not worthy of you anyway. I just know that out in the world there are many that will find your words here relatable x

Very deep write and one day you'll meet someone who'll be all you want and they will think that of you too.
