i really wanted to

by Matthew Sharp

sometimes i just didnt want to answer the phone
because I knew I was going to have to talk
and what if the other end was so much
it pokes holes in my vulnerability....
insecurity, failure, guilt and shame
i never played that game
no 'constant' to that experiment
could ever win
the stare down
I wouldnt share my heart
with the monster
and it killed me
I wanted to call it reprieve
but i still dont know what to believe
