Are you afraid?

Why talk to her
When her eyes are closed
Are you afraid?
Afraid that she'll not look at you?
Why talk to her
When her ears are closed?
Are you afraid?
Afraid the she'll not listen to you?

i am afraid
that my bones will rust
before these buildings do

i am afraid
that my soul will fade
before this ink does

i am afraid
that i will lose my tongue
before the world loses its flavour

i am afraid
you will (not) be there
when the bullet strikes

i am very afraid

I'm afraid of myself because of what I might do
I am afraid of myself because of what I can't have
I am afraid of how I will do
And how I will do it too
I am afraid of everything
I just won't let you see

Yes, I'm afraid to let you in. I'm afraid that you'll listen and care for the moment. I'm afraid you'll hear every syllable that leaves my lips. I'm afraid you'll analyze it all and reach the point where I'm deemed as "not worth it". I'm afraid you'll throw me away like rubbish. Like everyone else has.

I'm afraid of you
Because I shouldn't, and then
Because you want me to.

One day I realised,

I was only ever
afraid
of
myself.

It terrified me.

Never be afraid to speak out
Never be afraid to cry out
Never be afraid to shout out
Never be afraid to ask for help
Never be afraid to tell a friend they're wrong
Never be afraid to be wrong
Never be afraid to do the right thing
Never be afraid to grasp at happiness
Never be afraid face up and fight
Never be afraid to turn your back and run
Never be afraid to live

Life's hard but being strong and not being afraid is half the battle

I'm too afraid to let anyone in
I might make the mistake of letting them discover my secrets
Because what happens when they don't need you anymore
You were just a little star when they were the moon

Don't waste your time on me.
Everyone leaves me.
