I can never be

There's a dull sense of


shrouded by nervous energy.

I don't want to go
but I need to see you

I don't want to see you
I don't want to disappoint -

Can't you see you've made me this
way you've changed me in a
a decision I never knew of
was never a part of.

It's impossible to tell
but my uncertainty plagues each
and my insecurity widens with each

from you, each word.

There is something I can never be.
I can never be

whoever it is you think you see.
