Written because I like you

I’m so sorry I wasn’t likable enough, 
I must have spoken too much, 
Must have laughed too hard, 
Must have been so rude… 
I’m sorry, 
I’m just not good with first encounters, 
Nor am I good in socializing.
This is why I ask for your understanding, 
That you would give me a chance, 
And look past my awkwardness,
To find the real me, 
Hidden behind the walls,
I built to keep you away.
