I'm scared you won't understand,
So I'm hiding from you.
If you saw the real me,
You would call me a monster.

I'm scared you won't understand,
So I'm showing you a fake.
This fake shows nothing,
Yet you still give it a kiss.

I'm scared you won't understand,
So I'm leaving you alone.
Both of me in hiding,
Still loving you from afar.

I'm scared you understood,
So I'm leaving you alone.
You've caught my emotions
And twisted my life.

I'm scared of you,
So I'm running away.
Running until I'm free,
of your happy memory.

I think its great, it makes me think of my poem Monster in some ways. You definatly have your own style, i found that lots of your poems end with the last two lines rhyming but nothing else, i like it.
