Compliment

I find it hard
to receive a compliment.
Not knowing
how it is meant.
Is there
an ulterior motive
or are they
genuinely emotive.
I respond with
a cautious thank you
convinced that
it will be withdrew.
I cannot look
them in the eye
in case they
realise its all a lie.
That I am not
who they think I am.
That from
the outside
my life’s a sham.
