Harder to tell you than to tell myself. I cannot, will not reject myself. You can. You have that power over me. I am vulnerable At your mercy Need to be the object of your understanding. Please do not stop loving me. I am not different You just know the truth. And will you condemn me for the truth? Tear my heart out? Best friends are so rare. You cannot just throw them away. Do not throw me away, I am not your trash. Did you see the tears? It was hard. I want you to love me still. It is so hard to tell the truth When so much is on the line. But only the truth will set you free And I need to be free. I am dying in this cage.
