The reservoir of emotions,
Such a scary place,
I know that if I have a single kiss,
That everything I feel,
Everything I cannot put into words,
Will be transferred,
And it scares me to death,
To let my guard down,
To let the sea of emotions through,
Because I am scared to death to fall in love with you,
That is where you can hurt me,
That is where I am vulnerable,
Where rejection is a thousand knives,
Where tears fall onto soaked pillows,
Where yelping pain echoes in the confined walls of my mind.
So let the walls be built.
This fortress of protection.
So that my heart may be protected.
