Found this lurking in a dusty corner of my hard drive this morning. I was clearly feeling a bit self-indulgent and sorry for myself. I’ll probably delete it tomorrow!
I used to be thin skinned.
Now I feel I have no skin at all.
I can’t listen to music
In case a chord progression takes me by surprise
Or watch TV
In case somebody dies.
I look down into the eyes of a child in my arms
And my heart breaks.
It’s love, but it still hurts
And I don’t know whether I’m more scared of letting it in
Or letting it out.
