too proud

i would trade every
compliment from unknown lips
for an embrace from familiar arms
strength evades
all that remains is the
weakness for you
deep within my chest
too proud to admit my wrongs
i swallow this like i do
my sorrows.
too proud to admit i am broken
beyond repair
beyond a thousand compliments
without you
