its hard to believe im worth loving when no one tells me they love me.
its hard to believe im worth knowing with hardly anyone knows me.
its hard to believe i could ever be desirable when the only voice i hear
tells me how ugly i am.
its hard to believe im strong when my whole life i've called myself weak,
when weakness is still holding me back.
i just want someone to hold me.
but my shortcomings have left me all alone.
to tell me these tears im crying arent pointless.
to tell me they understand.
to hear someone say, "i love you."
to be kissed. to be cradled.
for the first time.
to be warm.
are you tired of hearing all this?
i'm tired of saying it.
