afraid of ?

My trashcan poetry

I stand here silently as the rain falls softly 
the rain drops are cold upon my skin but not as 
cold as I feel within 
I stand here in the rain thinking of all the bridges 
I've burned 

looking out into the the lighting flashes 
a tear slides down my cheek hidden from those 
that would pry 
one by one the rain drops wash away the painted smile 
tonight the darkness is my friend it hides all my fears 
are they right ?

do I pushed everyone away because I'm afraid of getting hurt.
or am I afraid because I am alone.
