Title: When It Really Matters
Author: Heather P.

My corked bottle snapped today;
shattering into pieces that will never be glued together.
I have kept everything inside,
Hoping that they would pass with time,
Like they always do;
I'm such a fool.

Forgive me for I do not know how to speak the truth to you
(when it really matters)
Why I don't speak up and confess what I feel,
I don't know.
I just know that I am afraid to show myself and get rejected,
Like I have been before,
Because I've never had someone who was always there for me
(when it really matters)
And in a way I don't know what to do with you,
You're so new...
Do you come with instructions?
Maybe...Friend 101,
Would be a good place to start.

I have no idea how to unleash this capped off heart,
So every now and then I snap;
My mouth breaking and letting flow all the things I've meant to say all along.
Don't get me wrong,
I love you so.
But I need some new training cause I was not prepared for someone as wonderful as you.
