I can be your hero

I’d keep my promise

I can be your hero

 

but I won’t be

 

most suitable for

 

your heart

 

I’ll fuck things up

 

you’ll hate waiting

 

get frustrated with my masking

 

end up eventually leaving

 

never speaking to me again

 

even if you said you wouldn’t

 

I’d put that fake smile

 

letting you go

 

if that is what you wished

 

But even after

 

I’d keep my promise

 

to keep you safe

 

to be there

 

no matter what

 

to make sure

 

you are okay

I’ll still be your hero

even if you

don’t know
