    Afraid

    I was afraid
    this day would come,
    when you would look me in the eyes
    and question my sanity,
    the emotions you could never see.
    But when you asked if I cared
    I reasoned through my actions.
    Your words were hollow
    and often a blow
    to my now fragile heart,
    I often keep from falling apart.
    When I was with you
    the worst would always be true,
    If that's what my tear strained face meant to you
    then I would rather never choose.
    I am afraid there would be another you
    if I stayed any longer.
    I ain't afraid anymore,
    of the shadows
    lurking in the dark,
    cause that's what you are
    and I could be.
