You believe in me, the person that I can be
dancing beneath the velvet night sky
Twisting and turning. Romance abounds
or is that my imagination?
I love, I learn, I yearn and I dream
I want to feel your truth
pull me into the warmest embrace
Make me feel your pain.
The acceptance I want, that I desire
you promised to me
Silently, vocally, telling me you understand
and yet, you run for the hills.
I am not a superstar, nor am I normal
I bleed and I flail, hanging by a thread
as I wait for you to see me go.
