It is hard to create new paths
when the old ways are ingrained.

To your heart.
To your soul.
To your brain.

Openness and Love Can mould that concrete into clay.
Towards understanding
and no pain.

Nothing should ever be a certain path.
You should always be ready for a new change.

Then.
And Only Then.
Will compassion elate.

There's a piece missing that I can't seem to find it.
I don't seem to care.
I don't want to try.
That doesn't seem right.

I don't seem to feel.
It feels like charades.
Are they even mine.
Those feelings inside.

I look in time.
Is it too late to try
to find that piece
that is missing inside?

Just feeling a little lost and empty

You can't love somebody you don't know.

I can't love myself because I don't fully accept myself.
I don't know myself.
I don't accept my own image.
I don't accept some of my actions.

I put up a front.
Confidence.
Happiness.
I pretend to not care but inside I feel.
Pettiness.
Jealously.
I hold onto stupid things.
Grudges.
Resentment.

I want to accept myself.
I want to forgive myself.
I want to learn from myself.
From my past self to my present self in order to become a better human being.

I want to love myself.
I need to love myself.

I will love myself.

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.
