inside me is an aching feeling.
An aching feeling of desperately wanting to be accepted
an aching feeling of wanting to be loved by you.
Stepping on eggshells everytime i’m around you
not knowing what i’m going to find today
it all comes towards me at once
and pushes me down like a big tidal wave
I never knew why you had so much pain filled inside you
so much pain you have inflicted onto me
latching to me
to feel the ache as deeply as you
so here I am, eager for the day to come
the day I don’t have an aching feeling inside me
the day I won’t feel the need to change every aspect of me for your liking
the day I can dance around freely.
