Convincing yourself that everything is okay
Like diving into a cold body of water and telling yourself that it’s warm
To put your hand on the burner as your hand is screaming, you’re telling yourself that its
That being cold in your heart is only because the world couldn’t handle your warmth
The world would be better place with your chambers cold and only the thing hot is the buildup of your
That’s why you tell yourself that everything is okay because you believe no one else would be there to tell you that everything is
But it’s okay to not be okay and it’s alright to be cold and you don’t have to justify your actions and you don’t have to hold your hand over the burner anymore
Because what you think is cold of your thoughts can be the warmth to someone else.
Can you hold onto my heart
Can you force it to beat
My lifeline is on straight until you tell me to breath
A manual action
A physical human to human interaction
The dependency for me to breath
You are the source that lies beneath
The chambers of my ribs which broken now
Can you hold onto my heart
Or do you not know how?
Running the faucet hot you need to feel the string
Physical, real, catching your breath, something to make you scream
You want to feel the pain
You want to cry in a form
Because your emotional state is numb
You do not notice that strain anymore
No more sensation in those chambers anymore
So look at that welting, those blisters on your skin
For your heart has already welted away
As a rose blown gone in the wind
You must pick yourself up
Please stop thinking that you can have your life together right now
Yes, your puzzle pieces are a bit scattered but you’ll put them back together
In the future, you’ll learn how.
It’s okay that you don’t have the glue to adhere them together for a secure singular piece
Just know your life will come together because after all
You are still a masterpiece.
It is important, self-love.
Some consider it an exaggeration
But dear you must love yourself, you have to see the beauty and not keep at bay
For your features are not just surface, you are not just flesh
Your heart, those chambers, that mind
There’s so much to love of yourself
Indulge in your exquisite character far beyond your physical appearance
Kiss your thoughts and hug your personality
I needed to see if my mind knew what to feed my heart so it could beat another day.
Tie your hair back as a splash of cold water hits to awake another day.
Stomach aches, throat sore, reminds you of the night before. It is a daily occurrence now, like brushing your teeth, or splashing your newly awoken face.
Habitual and centered. A routine, no longer needed to be remembered.
Hold your hair back. Purge. Splash water on your face.
After all, it is your daily occurrence.
