don’t you know,
there are ugly scars beneath this skin.
if you get too close i’m afraid you will see things that will make you regret the decisions you have made regarding me. i don’t want to be on your list of mistakes.
i only want you to see me in the right light; when i can be sure you won’t see my mind unfold in the worst possible way, when i can be sure my brokenness, inside and out, is safely hidden away.
i can’t allow you to see me when it gets dark, when the moon lights up the sky,
because darling don’t you know;
i take my bracelets off at night.
