Take care of me
I need you

I will never say

My fear is if I say it
You will run away

Need is terrifying
Both felt and as expressed

It’s better to deny it
And keep it well in check

But sometimes I grow tired
Of seeming to be brave

I want to run to you for help
Be rescued, sheltered, saved

My strength is my appearance
And that is what I show

My weakness must be shielded 
So only I will know.
