I am terrified of intimacy,
of laying my soul bare to someone.
To have someone know me so completely
my thoughts are practically their own.
I have no trouble listening to others' secrets
their desires and wishes
nor do I have trouble sharing what I'd like
the world to know.
But to have someone look deep into my eyes
and know my weaknesses
the shames of my past
--I just don't think
I can give someone
of destroying me like that.
Sometimes, ya just gotta let the emotions out.
