You Can'T Know Me - Poem by Gabriella Franco

Theres a part of me that I hide
A part I can't let you see
The reason I don't get to close
Is because you CAN'T know me

I hide myself behind these eyes
These eyes that sparkle green
Blue sometimes and soetimes grey
What's behind them is unseen

I'm sorry if It seems i'm detatched
I'm sorry if I can't feel the same
It's not that i dont. I just wont show it
'Cuz I am NOT okay.

I don't want you to worry
I don't want you to understand
I just want to hide away
And write my fears in the sand

I want to pretend you know me
So i pretend you care
But I know in a month or two
You'll just forget I'm there

I don't want to fall in love
It hurt like the hell i know
It's too late. I'm in love
But I won't let it show

I'm sorry I won't tell you
Or talk about my problems
Hey, if you really care
You can read this poem

I hate to be alone in this
But I don't want you to feel
This pain that i have inside of me
Just let me be unreal

I want you to crack my shell
i want to let you see
But as long as you dont know how
You can't know ME

    Aha, that's it. Tis the deeper, more mature young lady's version of 'hard to get.'
    It'd be interesting to see what your boy would think if he were to read this poem eh?
    Sometimes, all I want to do is leave it up on the screen and see what he says... but, then again, I don't really want him to see the real me either.
