I'm not perfect

I'm not perfect 
I'm far from it
I make mistakes and when i'm near defeat i give up and run from it 
Afraid to fall in love for fear of losing it 
My emotions are what i'm losing to
And myself is who i'm losing with
Afraid to get up,for fear i may fall
Fear i may fall so i dont get up
I'm stuck
Within myself
Too scared to defend myself 
Too proud to ask for help
So i melt
No one to blame but myself

    Your poems are very intriguing... they peal the veneer off and give us simple and unique introspections.

    Really love reading your stories, coming directly from the heart, I wish you so much luck, I can't wait till you finally set yourself free to love, what a weight that will be lifted, hope and peace, debra
