I know I should let you
do all the talking,
but when you are silent,
my mind starts churning.


I'm always overthinking
and second guessing
everything you do
and whatever you say.


I start believing that
you are not trustworthy,
that your words
are laced in lies.


You never gave me doubt
but still I create it
because of the fear
of losing you.


I'm just scared of
being hurt so I keep you
at a distance
or try to push you away.


But please don't go,
I promise once you
break through the walls,
it will be worth it.
