Sheltered truths

Hidden deep within my heart

Slightly revealed when you're in my presence

Yearning for what we had

But I withdraw unwillingly

Trying to save myself from abuse and strife

It is better to have no one at all

Then to have bruises set upon my soul

I always feel your eyes watching me

Glaring at me

Trying to find the proof of the love that I had

It's still there

You just haven't found it yet.
