My eyes sink to the floor
I can’t look at you anymore

You say I’m under your skin
But I know what I’m keeping in

The skeletons I’ve tried to hide
Are desperate to be outside

I fight to keep them silent
But I’m breakable and frightened

If you knew you might sympathize
But only for a little while

When you go loneliness will come
And all of me will be left numb

So I only want you to see
Whatever you want me to be

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    A bit sad, she has to keep her secrets ” the skeletons in.” Even though she wants him to only see what he wants, I’m sure if he cares for her, like she does for him, he wants to see her secrets and all even if that means she’s fragile.
