    Building A Wall

    It's rare that I find a good relationship and when for the first time I finally found a good guy but I'm in such fear of getting hurt I don't express my feelings. When a good guy comes along I feel it's too good to be true so I get so defensive sometimes. He has never given me a...

    No matter how close I get to anybody I always
