makes me wanna run away and crash into your arms.
makes me wanna remain hidden in a place only you'll know.
place you'll keep me safe and entertained,
no tears, no forced smiles, no suppressed thoughts.
no insecurities picked out, no comparisons drawn.
i'll be enough, my feelings will be valid.
complex emotions and heartfelt explainations won't be stifled
by the crass words of "relax".
when i've seen how she can soothe others, it cuts deeper.
my experiences and opinions are a rude inconvenience.

i need to hang around because it's what everyone else does.
i should stay a while longer, the bride hasnt changed her dress
why don't i like weddings, all the girls i grew up with are

she'd make excuses for them.
how easily the excuses come when its in defence of someone other
