I Dont Let A Lot Of People Into My Life

    Always Alone

    Troublesome...

    It can be difficult to let someone in. Even if it’s only part way. Once inside I let them see all the things I hide away from what most see as me. There’s so many thoughts, emotions, raw pain, that I worry once unleashed it will overwhelm and wash them away.

    Let's Avoid The Crap

    You'll hurt me or I'll hurt you (which will hurt me by adding to my shame). Let's just enjoy one another's company for a short while and then just keep passing by. I'm sick of hurting, is all.

    Many people view me as snobby, when in fact I am only being selective. I've been burned too many times to reach into the oven again without proper protection (metaphorically).

    People who I let get close to me either hurt me, or I hurt them. It's all I've known. Any good, I'm afraid of because it's abnormal for me.
