Forgive Me If I Doubt You

I’ve never had someone that I could count on.

Forgive me if I question your intentions, I’m not used to people being honest.

Forgive me if I’m surprised you’re here, I’m not used to people caring.

Forgive me if I question why you want to help, I’m not used to people giving.

Forgive me if I flinch when you touch me, I’m not used to being held.

Forgive me if my body shivers, I’m not used to feeling safe.


Forgive me if I‘m not open, I’m used to being hurt.

Forgive me if I build walls, distrust runs deep in my veins.

Forgive me if I’m taken back by your stability, I’m usually the strong one.

Forgive me if I cry, I was never told that I could.

Forgive me if I’m slow to speak, denial is something I know too well.


Forgive me if I don’t make sense, I fight battles you’ll never know.

Forgive me if I tried to stay close, you give me peace I’ve never known.

Forgive me if I can’t stop smiling, I’m used to creating my own happiness.
