My Fear Of Me

My method madness,

I turn to burning sun

that penetrates a skin

mine I wear for some.


I want to be a sight in

eyes that scan through

a pleasing gaze to see

that what does amuse.


A version of me change

I do so you can approve

of my interjection into

your ears to reach you.


Starve my soul it does

for a connection true

that allows me to be a

person once I knew.


So many faces present

my own fear of me see

I stumble I do in dark;

it covering the real me.


Will you be there when

you witness me stumble

like when I was a child

innocent now troubled.


I want to be the person

you run to for to hug.

Inside me I seek peace

that as if it were a drug.


Can I be me for you my

dear friend you fall now

out of an interest in me;

what must I do tell how.


Tell me why how if you

changed thought I can

still appreciate you I do

wish you me understand.
