like a candle

like a candle

A Poem by hopeless

like a candle, I blew you out because I was scared of the flame you set in me


It was like a candle,

when I felt something I got scared,

I told myself I'd never let anyone else

cut me open

without sewing me up first.

When you kissed me,

I felt something and I got scared,

I told myself that I'd never let someone else

kiss me like that because

I didn't “deserve it”

When you looked at me,

I felt something and I got scared

I told myself that I'd never let anyone love me,

ever again because I was

too “hard” to love.

So when I felt something,

I blew it out

I didn't want to drag someone else

into the mess he created before

I got scared because,

I had to face the fact that

he didn't love me like he was supposed to,

and you did.

I am glad to see you write and post this; you've taken a few well placed steps in the right direction. I figured you'd disappeared ... I am glad this wasn't the case.
