Behind the Curtain

Stay away from me!

I hate people!

I don’t want friends!

 

I want you closer.

I love you.

I want to be your friend.

I am scared.

I was hurt.

I am weak.

 

No! Don’t touch me!

I don’t trust you!

I don’t need your pity!

 

But I’m so cold.

I trust you.

I need you to understand.

I am lost.

I am lonely.

I am fake.

 

I am lost behind the curtain.

A curtain of shame.

A curtain so dark.
