    I try so very hard
    Not to be paralyzed with fear
    But it’s been beaten into me for years
    That I could never be good enough
    You touch my skin so gently
    Your eyes trail over me with love and passion
    And I want so desperately to believe you
    With every fiber of my being
    Please don’t be scared away
    When I open up and you see how terrified I am
    That at any moment this will vanish
    You will realize you can do better
    And everything they’ve ever told me
    Will finally come true
    My world will crash around me
    And I’ll be left by myself
    To pick up all the broken pieces
