Last night I tasted

The saltiness of a true tear.

A tear embedded in fear

Head aching from thoughts unclear.

So sudden,

So unexpected-

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-

So voulnerable

Standing there naked

Without any armor!

How naive can I be?

I wonder

As I cry myself to sleep.
