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
