You say I don't understand you
and I probably don't

But how can I ever begin to understand
if you never tell me anything?

Are you okay?
I'm fine...


Are you?

How am I supposed to know
if you always tell me
what you think I want to hear

Tell me how everything is falling apart
how you hate everything
including yourself

including me

Just don't tell me lies

I can't help you
when all you show me
is a wall

I can't help you
unless you help me first

Help me understand
even if I never truly will
Are you?

I'll admit that I do this a lot. I guess it's easier to push people away then let them in.

that's so truth... but sometimes the fear or the pride make us stop to tell how we feel... but always we express our feelings across the look...

This strikes a cord with me somehow. Well done.
