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.
