Why do you make me feel this way?

I'm confident.

I don't let anyone put me down.

I act like I'm better than everyone.

I walk like I own the world.

Acting so cocksure makes me feel in control of my own life.

But when I'm with you, that act falls to pieces.

You're the acid that makes my mask slip away.

I become the terrified little girl I really am.

And I hate you all the more for it.

Even though I love you.
