The Way I’m Built

I’ve spent forever,
Not sharing my problems.
I’ve hidden so much,
More than I could mention.

My mind is my own,
It isn’t your playground.
My feelings are the wind,
Touching you but going unseen.

The secrets I’ve kept,
Are used to their cave.
Hidden in the dark,
Out of sight out of mind.

It’s not that I don’t trust,
It’s that I don’t want to say.
If I’m hurting you’ll never see,
Hidden away behind my smile.

A lash out isn’t fair to you,
But it’s the only chance you’ll get.
The only way you’ll get a clue,
Is me being mad at you.

Don’t fear my madness,
It’s just misplaced.
You’re more important to me,
More than I thought possible.

I can’t let you know it all,
I never want to take off my mask.
It makes me happy,
Knowing you think I am.

Be content with my wishes,
And I’ll never be vicious.
Respect what I need,
And I’ll never bleed.

Sorry I’m this way,
The only thing I can say.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Is this normal?
My Mother LOVES telling everyone all her business and how hindered she is by it, but I hate people knowing what's wrong and I hate people feeling sorry for me.
