I act strong

And i push you away

Because I am afraid to show you my weaknesses

To expose my flaws, faults and imperfections

And maybe it's my pride

Or my need to depend solely on myself and no one else

That puts a rift in between us

Because I find it hard to to express my feelings

Always fearing being rejected

And it's lonely to always be alone

With no one to hold or cherish


But I'd rather never fall in love, then to give

A person my heart who doesn't know it's worth
