It’s so damn hard to wear my heart on my sleeve

I’d like to show you who I really am

but I know you’d judge every word

and say that I’m a pathetic excuse for a human being

or that I’m just copying the leading man

You’ll stab it with a knife

and leave me bleeding once again

-


Forever will turn into never

And I’m here living my worst fears

you’re laughing ready to drop the rope

because thats the kind of person you are

-

This is what i secretly hate you

but I hate making enemies more

so I’ll just grin and bear it

grin and bear it

making a learning experience of it

I’ll build my walls higher and stronger

until I don’t have any emotion to share with the world

You’ll stab it with a knife

and leave me bleeding once again

but this time alone and unclothed

because thats the kind of person you are

thats the kind of person that I am

… Just found this and forgot I wrote it the other day. It took me a second to realize that I actually wrote it because sometimes I save lyrics so they’re right there, but I guess I actually wrote this one…

Thanks! This is the first song/poem that I've posted to a website other than my blog.

I've read this over and over at least 5 times. It's beautiful.

Sounds like something I would say to someone. Good job at capturing the emotion.
