I hope you'll understand
I just need to be alone
I need to learn to love myself
Or I'll suffocate you with all my emotions
There's no need to burden you with my pain
I need to be in this emotional rain

I hope you'll understand
When I say
No matter how much you were there for me
I'm sorry to say
I feel so alone
Please don't be afraid
I've always been this way

I hope you'll understand
Once I walk out the door
I don't want to hurt the one I love the most
I'm not strong enough
To look at my reflection
And honestly say, "I love you"

I hope you'll understand
I'm not okay
I need your strength
Or I'll push away my emotions
Hide the pain some more
I don't want to feel empty anymore

I hope you'll understand
When I say
I don't want to be alone
Please say you'll help me learn to love the reflection in the mirror
Don't let me walk out the door no more


The author's comments:
I have so many people who love me, but they don't see I'm in pain. I can't love then until I learn to truely love myself. Or I might push them away with the hate I feel for myself. I hope this poem helped someone else know it's okay to ask for help when your not strong enough at the moment. Like Demi Lovato lives by Stay Strong <3
