How can you love someone like me?
Want to settle for this?
When you place your hands on my skin
I sense danger, fear. It’s alien
And I don’t want to be scared of you
I wish I could love you back
See myself as the prize you see
Not the novelty item you’re forced to keep
Believe the promises you make
Say ‘I love you’ back. Truthfully
Let you touch me. Anywhere.
Without fear, but love.
Yet I can’t. I fear your love. Us.
This foreign concept
Being a pair, not singular
Knowing you deserve better.
