Enough

I wish you could know the sane part of me
The part of me that is competent and articulate
The part of me that can carry on a normal conversation
That can joke and laugh and have fun

Not this part of me who can’t think or breathe near you
Who fumbles over words and stumbles over my feet
Who wants to disappear from your sight
and yet wants to be the only one you notice

There’s this whole other me you don’t know
Maybe you’ll never know
Because I can’t be her around you
I can’t be calm or still or silent

I want to be everything to you
But I’m just me
Hidden deep inside insecurity
Wishing I could be enough
