Conditional Love

I would love for you to know me, but I spend too much time absorbing and listening to your life to want to concern you with mine. Trained to please people, the condition of being loved. You only get to see the surface, the mask that I hide behind. It is with no ill intention or deception that I do this, I just don’t want to be a burden for fear of chasing you away. If I make you happy, perhaps you will consider to stay, for others have stayed only because they managed to manipulate and control me to my ignorant dismay.

Without a motive
if only you could see me
Unconditioned love
