I (Can)

I (28/2/2012)

I can smile
I can laugh
I can hide away behind brown eyes
I could open up
But I probably won't

I can rip you to shreds if I wanted
I don't lie
But I can avoid the truth
And the truth is
I'm a mess
I'm made of a twisted past and silly habits
Yet still you choose to accept me

I am stubborn
I can be fickle
Even though I know what I need
I'll want your hugs
And the sound of your voice
But chances are
I'll never let you know when I need it most

I can rip you to shreds if I wanted
I don't lie
But I can avoid the truth
And the truth is
I'm a mess
I'm made of a twisted past and silly habits
Yet still you choose to accept me

I'm reckless
My own worst enemy
I'm hyper at times
Then all I want is to hide under the covers
Ignore the world

Oh, I can smile
I can laugh
I can pretend I'm alright
Or let the fountain pour
But I'll never let it out when others are around

I can rip you to shreds if I wanted
I don't lie
But I can avoid the truth
And the truth is
I'm a mess
I'm made of a twisted past and silly habits
Yet still you choose to accept me

And in spite of my own criticizing mind
I wouldn't want to be anyone else
And I'm glad you put up with me
Now just tell my mind
To stop worrying over silly things 

The End
