Scared

Because you are real.

I guess I'm scared. 

Because you are real 

and society is not. 

That makes me wonder 

who you are.

With those misty eyes,

staring at me like I'm 

everything. 

And yet nothing more

than a person holding on to dark secrets

I can not 

share. 


You are invisible

to the world of selfish people. 

But every new day will be appreciated, 

because reality awakens with you

by it's side. 

Your smile covers the tracks

of an unfair childhood. 

But though this fake world

can not see your overwhelming strength,

the sun will yet again rise, 

because of you. 


I am scared. 

Because you are real 

and society is not. 

That makes me wonder 

who you are. 

I believe I will find the answers, 

through your words. 

So let me listen. 

Give me once again 

the opportunity to love.
