There are some things

I am afraid of.

Like closed spaces,

and lonely nights,

and strange dark places.

But if I am truly honest,

what scares me the most,

is if you were to

peel away all my layers

and untangle all my secrets

You would find,

that the deepest parts of me

were not what you wanted.

Baby I am afraid

that if you open my hidden box,

everything I keep inside,

won’t be

what you’re looking for.

There are some things

I too am afraid of.

Like closed minds,

and lonely days,

and familiar dark places.

But I’m rarely honest,

and that scares me the most,

if you were to peel away all my layers

and undress me to my soul

you’d find nothing

Nothing you want,

or want anything to do with

and that’s okay.

Because I don’t exist to please you

I exist for you,

for better or for worse,

you’re stuck with me now

so deal with it.
