Anxiety can stop us from trusting people and I wish that didn't happen

My eyes hurt,
From all these tears.
And my head hurts,
From all these fears.

These thoughts,
They cut me.
These tears,
They burn me.
And no matter what,
Your love can't save me.

I can't look at you
When I tell you my feelings.
My hearts says you won't judge me,
But my anxiety says otherwise.
And so I sit here,
With my nails dug into my thighs
And my mind switches focus,
Away from your prying eyes.

You tell me I can trust you,
You ask me why I don't.
But I don't think I have an answer,
And I doubt I ever will.

You see,
My anxiety tells me 
everyone's out to get me.
Some part of me knows 
that's not true.
But I can't think it through.
Not when my fears take control. 
And not when 
my anxiety tells me what to do.
