I'm sorry,

If sometimes I sound

And act like
I'm pushing you away.


I'm not scared

Of losing anything...

I didn't need


My life has no

Greater meaning

Until I met you.


It's just that I'm beginning

To love you beyond

I've ever felt before,

Beyond I ever thought

I could,

And it scares the hell

Out of me.


It scares me

Because I have a glitch-

The one you know of.

Some time in the past,

I've allowed myself

To love -



And though I know

You are different

And THIS is incomparable,

Loving too much

Triggers the me that was

Hurt too much


And when it happens,

Something inside of me

Shuts off.

And I get scared,

And I try to fight it off,

Pretending I'm okay

When I'm not.


Worse, in defense,

I foolishly build

This stupid wall,

Made of silly words-

Between us.


Wall of words

To gather courage

That I'm ready for 


Because you and

Your happiness,

Mean everything

To me.


A wall I built,

As if I didn't know

That the warmth

Of your love and

The gentleness

Of your heart

Can see and pierce

Through it.


You know me better.

That I was dying

To be rescued.

You're still there

Unmoved, unshaken.


But waiting, patiently

With open arms-

For me.


I'm so, so, soooooooo very sorry.

If I sound 

And act like

I'm pushing you away.

More than anything,

Despite my glitch,
