Why are you scared of me?

When I should be scared of you?

You have the power to hurt me.

I wonder if I have that power too.

You are not scared to be hurt.

Rather you are scared to get close.

I want to be with you,

I want to be close.

I feel like a monster.

Do I make you sick?

Do I make you choke?

Because you run from me so quick.

I feel like a ghost.

Why are you so scared?

I merely want to be with you.

Can’t you see my heart will tear?
