I don’t trust myself with you. I’ve built myself a lonely cage. I use my fear as my protector. But sometimes, I open the cage. Step-out to breathe in the fresh air of what could be, then get terrified with the first breath I inhale, and I go back in. Because I’ve learned that the more people you let into your life, the more vulnerable you get. The easier it is for them to walk out. And so I will suffer in silence. Because I'd rather be lonely. Than happy then broken.
