Love Me.

 

Love me for who I am not for who you want me to be,

take a step back, close your eyes then for once just see me.

 

I can’t be your illusion, and I’ll never go and pretend,

your view of me is broken and it really needs to mend.

 

I’m not some creation in your mind, a character in your book,

this is me as I really am, so come and take a look.

 

I’ll never stray from being me – tried once before and failed,

I took away my personality, kept it securely jailed.

 

I can’t go on just wearing masks, who I am keep hiding,

the constant strain is telling and insanity is rising,

 

Take off those tinted glasses and keep things somewhat real

for anything that is fantasy will stamp us under heel.

 

So love me just for being me, for being who I am,

for any other reason is a love that is a sham.
