Hold on to me

Please, don’t look at me like that
I see the pity in your eyes
And I can feel your sympathy
But I don’t want it
I don’t need pity
It makes me feel small
And pathetic
Like I always need someone looking out for me
I don’t need you
I am broken, but I am strong
I don’t need you
But maybe, if I don’t look in your eyes
If I can’t see the pity
It would be okay if you would just hold me
And let me cry until I have no tears left
Maybe I could feel better with your arms around me
I’m sorry
I do need you
I need someone
Not to fix me
Just to hold the broken pieces while I try to put them back together
