Security of Seeing the Worst

Sometimes

we convince ourselves

to believe the worst in people,

not because they are bad,

but out of fear of believing

they are as good as they seem

and for them to become

more valuable to us

than they already are

 

For it is easier

to shut them out,

remaining safe,

than to take the risk

of opening up more,

potentially getting hurt

with them meaning more to us

than they already do
