She is Me

Giving few chances and insight
One must show extreme devotion
To earn her trust, her respect, her heart
For her heart will never be easily broken 
Or given, of her own free will
She cannot control her desires
She too, like many others
Desires to be desired
Wants to be wanted, held, cherished
Yet she goes about her emotions
In contrast to the average female
She portrays unattainability
Innocence, character, in the light of a damaged being
With grudges towards her former perpetrators
If one should take the notion
To venture into her soul 
One would see a joyous woman
Dying to live her life
The way she imagines it
She's chosen not to see
How she is the source of her own destruction
She doesn’t let people in
For fear of loss, anguish, and heartache
She doesn’t see her actions being detrimental
But merely as a precaution, but precaution to what?
If she does not live with caution to the wind
She has nothing to be cautious of
She never lets herself feel, cry, mourn, 
She has all the answers but none of the questions
She knows and learns through others 
But cannot relate by experience
This cannot be blamed on her alone
She has a life ahead of her
Waiting, waiting
For her heart to grow
To break through the chains 
She’s placed on herself
And conquer the dream
She’s never dared to dream
