1. Maybe I’m foolish when
I want to be loved. Catching
and straining against the disapproval.

2. Maybe I’m stupid when I
expect so much. Hiding and keeping
my tears, so they don’t see I’m human too.

3. Maybe I’m weak when I try to live
and accept easy things. Watching my
life long souls fade into the distance.

4. Maybe I’m crazy when I cling to
first loves and broken dreams. Waiting
to hear that I’m not alone and I can be imperfect.

5. Maybe I’m broken when I crave understanding,
when I see that things will never be the same,
when I miss the way we were, when I wish I
could be full of that unexplainable joy.

6. Maybe I’m afraid of being left alone to
my sorrow and flaws.
Maybe I’m paranoid when I want to be loved. . . .
