    i stood before the mirror
    staring into my own eyes
    silent cries brought
    screaming tears
    gradually lessening my grip
    on the past and embracing
    future's uncertainty

    but letting no one in...

    i lie in bed
    total darkness evades/prevades
    back to the wall
    interior monologue
    needs facilitation


    but still letting no one in...

    i stroll down the street
    six deep but still alone
    chaos ensues
    surrounding life
    blares the blues
    the down home kind
    not the tunes that i chose
    or would have chosen
    volume is increased
    i wish it to cease
    emotions assualt and batter me
    like morally corrupt police

    and i wanna let someone in...

    this time i sit
    in ponderance of some deep ****
    realization is this
    no one really knows me
    can control me
    own me
    console me
    or hold me
    my mind advises
    that vulnerability equates
    with weakness and i can't
    let you see this
    not yet
    not now

    **** i need to let someone in...

    still sitting...can't move
    who in the hell dropped the needle
    back on the record of my blues
    let me grab my coat
    put on some shoes
    private parts of my being
    i'm not ready to lose
    because i'm not 110% confident
    that they'll be found
    even by you

    But who can i let in???

    i wanna terminate the guards
    that protect my heart
    too costly to for them to remain on payroll
    relinquish my soul
    have a key made,
    and provide u with tokens for the toll
    be comforted by your loving hold
    and every night...make LOVE

    But i'd have to let u in...

    at my door there's a knock
    peek thru the window
    check the clock
    no appointment
    but early u arrive
    as i consciously and continually strive
    to let you know me
    without stepping foot inside
    while your presence and chocolate essence
    makes me feel high, mighty and fine
    i relax, retreat, unwind
    nothing to hide
    took off the chain and deadbolt
    now baby...
    STEP INSIDE!
