Touch Me

Touch Me

I dont want you to touch me

because I'm afraid to feel it

I dont want you to speak to me

because I'm afraid I'll hear it

I dont want to open up

and let you see what i am

i dont want to be vulnerable

giving you the chance to crush me

so here i stand

all guards up

ready for anything

anything but failure

even if i never saw it in me

maybe you did, even for a moment

i would never surrender that,

actually being seen into

i can numb myself to the world

but its the pinholes that let me drown

its the compliments, the I love yous

they make me stumble in my steps

i can never see what you see

i hope you see the real me

past the masks and blockades

there is something downthere

and hopefully, its worth the waiting

but first you have to touch me

even when im afraid to feel

first you have to speak to me

even when im afraid to hear

i am not afraid of violence

nor dreams, nor hatred

nor god,nor the devil himself

I am afraid of you seeing who i am

and it not being good enough

and so i built these walls

the only way to break them

is to tell me how you love me first

its to make me feel

by showing me that you feel

dont tell me

too many words can be lies

show me

and i promise you

i will do my best

to drop my guards

to let you in

just show me

show me how it feels to feel
