Vulnerable

Vulnerable

A Poem by hannah

I’ve never seen myself like this before

I’m not sure of anything anymore

Feelings inside waiting to be set free

Look at what you’re doing to me

 

I don’t think I can hold this in one moment longer

 

I’ve pushed away too many people in my life

I’ve set a fire to all the good things that come inside

I’ll lay down the matches and blow out the candle

Cause tonight I’m making myself vulnerable

 

My guard is finally down

My walls have crumbled to the floor

I’m showing you everything I got

And I hope that’s enough for you

I’m not sparing my feelings

I’m letting them all out

I just want the whole world to know

Even if I have to scream and shout

 

I don’t think I can hold this in one moment longer

 

I’ve pushed away too many people in my life

I’ve set a fire to all the good things that come inside

I’ll lay down the matches and blow out the candle

Cause tonight I’m making myself vulnerable

 

This is all I have left in me

And yes, I’m so scared

Scared to fall, scared crawl

Back down on the floor

What if you don’t feel the same?

What if you’ve already moved on?

I don’t know if I could take

Not having you at all

 

I don’t think I can hold this in one moment longer

 

I’ve pushed away too many people in my life

I’ve set a fire to all the good things that come inside

I’ll lay down the matches and blow out the candle

Cause tonight I’m making myself vulnerable

 

Please say you love me and never go away

Please say you love me and never go away

Please say you love me and never go away

Please say you love me and never go away

 

I’ve pushed away too many people in my life

I’ve set a fire to all the good things that come inside

I’ll lay down the matches and blow out the candle

Cause tonight I’m making myself vulnerable

I’ve pushed away too many people in my life

I’ve set a fire to all the good things that come inside

I’ll lay down the matches and blow out the candle

Cause tonight I’m making myself vulnerable

 

I have nothing else to loose

You’re love is worth fighting for

I hope that now you know how I feel

You’ll come find me knocking on my door

Just a thought:
There are only two kind of people,
the pursuers and the pursued. The pursuers
are never happy with their catch, they will go
on to something better----then the "better? will
be the pursuer.
Just a thought.

I LOVE this stanza:

"I’ve pushed away too many people in my life
I’ve set a fire to all the good things that come inside
I’ll lay down the matches and blow out the candle
Cause tonight I’m making myself vulnerable"

What a beautifully haunting image of self-destruction.

thank you :)
That's cool. Now it needs guitar, a good tune, and a good voice

yes, trying to work on that now!
i read this and kept thinking "this would make an excellent love song...a ballad to break all hearts" and then i remembered who you are and thought, where does this precious girl find all this worldly experience? you are such a profound and deliberate writer and, i feel, soon to be one of the popular and prolific writers on this site. the words you write are dreams, touching all who embrace your poetry. this is superb. this gift should always be shared amongst your friends...and the world.
