Last night I tasted
The saltiness of a true tear.
A tear embedded in fear
Head aching from thoughts unclear.
I never thought I'd have to fight
For your love, care and affection.
Scared of everything, most of all neglection.
Since when do I cry over a guy?
I guess I really do pretend to be stronger
Than I actually am.
I'm weak and dependent; what is wrong with me?
I even did what I thought I couldn't;
I let you in
To my heart-
Standing there naked
Without any armor!
How naive can I be?
As I cry myself to sleep.
