If only…

She bats compliments away

like a seasoned tennis pro

tries her best to convince you

why they are untrue.

Compliment her outfit?

She’ll tell you how much it cost

then proceed to point out

all of its flaws

and when she’s feeling vulnerable

you will never know

that’s another emotion

she cannot show.

She’ll talk louder, make jokes,

usually aimed at herself

anything to assure you

she’s in control.

Oh, if only she could let you know

if only she could let you in

maybe then you’d see

just how much she’s struggling.

~The H Word~
