Showing You My All

If I told you that my world 
Was held in balance by you 
And that the sun only shines 
When you hold me close 
Would you run a mile and scream 
Leave me be, like all the rest 
Or would you look down into my soul 
And see a young woman desperate for love 
And destined for heartbreak? 

Would you hold me close and sigh 
As if the world stopped turning in that instant 
Or look at me cold like the dead 
And make me shudder and hide. 
If I showed you the real me
Behind this eager smile 
would you still see me as perfect 
And not broken and charred. 

If I took your hand and guided you 
To the deepest recess of my mind, 
A terrifying journey
where I would have nothing left to hide 
And you stood before the door 
Holding back my demons, 
Would you run or would you stand and fight. 
Imagine this door opens 
And you see the glowing eyes 
Would you turn and hide 
Or turn and face the
secrets fears that I possess. 

Once you fought the fear, 
The heartbreak and the envy
The broken dreams and shattered wishes
Even the confidence
Or lack of 
And the scars that followed after,
Once you fought them all
You would the biggest fear of them all
With your back turned
As you walked right out that door. 
No backward glance, 
No shaking tear. 
Just the all consuming fear 
That I've reached 
The point of no return.
