Tell Me Why

What was I when I first met you?
A tortured soul, a bruised heart!
Breathing through the day with pain,
Drowning deeper into my sorrow…

I fear what? I know not but I fear
So I curl up in my restrictive shell
Shying away from the bright light
That reflects from your poised self

From above the gates I had long closed
You immerge out of nowhere, up and rising
I freeze in my spot, too scared of myself
Pushing you away for your own good…

What could I give you? Part of my pain…
My shattered soul cries to your love
I deserve not a bit of it but I crave for it
You shower it all on me, but why? Tell me why…
