Letting You In

I let you in, though it was hard


I let you in, you saw my scars


I let you in, my heart is learning trust


I may be wary


I may have fear


Most times I'm in the dark and depression is near


My anxiety starts to worsen and my thoughts have learned to kill


My innocence and mind are their targets and like assassins, they find their mark


But I'm letting you in...


For as the saying goes, it is better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.


I love you
