Bottled Up

and all these lines i’d never say
all these letters without an address and stamp
all those goodbyes held back
i sincerely hope one day
you’ll finally know my true feelings
but for now i have to keep pretending
because i’m scared of your reaction
it really shouldn’t be hard
but it is.
and that’s ridiculous,
for my story can’t be that hard to tell.
when an opportunity arises,
i shut down
like the city at night
and when time emerges,
the sun disappears again.
badly i want everyone to know
really, how i feel about them
except i leave my emotions bottled up
so tightly even a leak can’t get in
trust me,
i know what i’m doing.
sadly you don’t see it,
because last time it happened,
you ruined me.

The End
