Don't Worry Love

July 25, 2009
Don't worry love,
it won't last long.
Your friends will see you as strong,
not the weak little boy
hiding behind his silly smirk.
They'll see you as a man,
when that's farthest from the truth.
You hide your emotions well,
you're the opposite of me.
I cann attempt to hold it together
but in the end I always fail.
I don't understand you,
I care about you so deeply.
I only wish you could show the same
enthusiasm that I always have.
You may drive your car at high speeds,
the rest of your life could be just as exciting.
If you'd only see,
I'm in this picture as well as you.
You want to satisfy yourself
with no thinking of how
it affects others, how it scares me.
You hurt me, you buried me,
my heart six feet under.
The rain can't drown the screams out,
it can't blot the tears out.
So don't worry love,
your reputation is safe.
Even if your relationship is not.

Oooh, ouchie. I love the last few lines, but the beginning could be just a little bit better. Not much though, this is awesome.
