I Can't help it

I just want to feel like someone cares about me. It's the little things, like a goodnight or good morning text or a compliment out of nowhere.

I want to know I'm on your mind. I don't want you to give up on me when things get difficult.

Be patient with me, I have a hard time expressing my feelings.

I can be a handful sometimes, but I promise I'm worth it.

I've just been hurt so many times that I'm scared to trust anyone again.

Be straight up with me, no lies. Don't spare my feelings, tell me things how they are.

Don't make up excuses, stick to your word.

Let me know you're busy when you don't talk to me.

Don't just tell me what I want to hear, say what you mean and mean what you say.

Don't pressure me into anything, whatever happens happens.

It will take me sometime to get comfortable with you, please understand.

I can't help it.
