My Biggest Worry

My biggest worry is that you'll just be another phase in my life

Just another situation that I couldn't change for

That you'll have never been glad to meet me

Because I ran rampant

I came on strong and then I forgot how to be

 

I don't want to lose me 

And I don't want to lose you

because I've got nothing that I want to keep

Because deep down the discomfort with myself

destroys all of my deepest needs

 

I push

And I shove

And I run

and then I walk

Right up to the worst of them,

presenting the worst of me,

and beg them

Pick me 

 

 Much love,

Kristen
