Insecure

I hurt you.

I bring you down.

You cry.

I hit myself,

I scream,

I put my face in my pillow,

So I won't breathe.

I love you.

Why can't I say it anymore?

My body shakes,

My stomach breaks,

My arms melt off,

I can't reach for anyone.

I don't want to see your tears.

I walk in to the room,

Your eyes - watery.

Tears come down,

and spill on the floor;

Like a faucet that may never be closed.

I drop on my knees.

I hold my hands together.

Push them against my chest.

Stare down at the floor.

I want to say "sorry",

But I don't.
