You See Too Much

Hold back those tears.
Don't let them come.
Cuz once they start,
they'll ever run.

I am so helpless.
Why do I fail?
You gave your heart
For me to steal.

And like a child,
I took your heart.
Though it will end,
I dropped my guard.

In time you'll see,
You see too much.
Cuz what I am
Ain't worth your touch.

That's why I cry.
You're you. I'm me.
This will end
in tragedy.

This is really beautiful, I'm sure everyone has felt at least the first stanza before. I love the rhythm and rhyme scheme, the entire poem flowed :)
