I hid from you my face

When tears were running down it

Because you were the cause of them,

And if you cared, I doubt it.

I hid from you my thoughts

When you occupied them completely.

It was at those moments when I needed to 

Open up to you the most freely.

I hid from you my worries

When I needed your consolation,

But as soon as things got better

I opened up without hesitation.

I hid from you my heart

Because I thought you’d break it.

Now I’m wondering “what if”,

And this anticipation I just can’t take it.

I hid from you myself

At times of vulnerability,

But even though I hid from you

I know you see me clearly.
