I can give you everything else,
Except my heart.
It hurts everytime I think of
How we fell apart.

And it's not even the distance
Between us.
It's just our egos and the emotions.
We kept behind bars.

In a mind full of insecurity.
The reason,
We've never felt assured of our beauty.

We want others to see,
What we want them to see.
And so we show our best selves,
Instead of just being us.

Love yourself, before you learn to love me.
