You told me you wanted to be my friend,
So I let you in, I don’t let anyone in.
Even the people who are closest to me don’t really know me.
I let you in and you hurt me,
Deeper than I ever knew it could go.
The pain you made won’t go away,
No matter how many times I try to push it to the side.
The words you said go round and round, over and over.
I let you in and I let you know me.
And you told me that it meant nothing.
You told me you still don’t feel close to me.
You told me the opening up that I made myself do was not good enough.
And now I tell myself to stay closed off.
I let you in, and now I don’t want to let anyone in.
What do you think? Have you let someone in and it didn’t feel right?
