And just for thought...
Do you believe me when I say I am fine?
I want you to see that I am just pretending strength for you, not for me.
Inside I am screaming for your hand.
I am terrified that you will see my fear.
You will be disappointed.
You will see I have not come as far as you think.
I am trying to be the girl you think I am,
standing so tall regardless of it all,
refusing to let it bring me down,
but my heart has a hard time pretending what my head can.
I wish I could scream this all out.
I fear you will grow weary of my pain,
the burden you will carry once I release it on you,
Do you see any of this?
I wish you were here.
I would give anything to fall asleep in your arms.
The world seems right only when I am with you.
I believe you are my safe haven.
I will make you proud of me.
I will become everything you dream me to be.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
