nobody knows

nobody knows me,
not him and not her, 
but then there's you

i want you to know me,
not for who everyone thinks i 
am,
but for who i know i am

i usually don't let people in,
or give them the chance to hurt 
me,
but you are worth the risk

i am like you,
you are like me,
but it is not the same

we are dangerous together,
i refuse to be hurt again,
but I may hurt more without 
you

i resist your words and your 
gaze,
not allowing myself to fall,
but i can't hold on any longer 

it is your choice,
you can betray me and leave,
but if i trust you, don't lose it

i will learn to like,
i will learn to love,
but it might take a while 

i could choose to like you,
And eventually love you,
But make sure i'm your only 
one

nobody knows me,
not him and not her,
but then there's you
