you are and can only be the ear in this relationship.
i can open and close but you cannot deflect.
you absorb all the sound,
letting it resonate throughout your body
but your soul cannot reciprocate.

the mirror seems to reflect itself.
enjoying its company
as the ear absorbs the vibrations, it feels every hurt and every sadness that has been projected by the mouth.
listen.
but you cannot speak.

always one way.
always one direction.
self indulgence.

not this time.

Toy
using emotion as bait
to reel and reap
for their selfish rewards
not thinking about the cost
of toying with someone's feelings.

all the things that you
say stick to my mind
and you don't even realise it.
i wasn't acting maternal i was jealous
i was asking if you're comfortable because
i care
not just care but love.
i would ask about your past
because i am invested.
on the other hand
did you ever feel this?

i need to stop
feeding my fantasy
with false reality.

the uncertainty drives my sanity insane

physically numb

mentally repressed

spiritually tangled.

press on

continue with hope

hopefully it works out,

Hopefully.

it's hard
when you have all the tools and knowledge to improve your life but the only missing ingredients are motivation and consistency.
