You say you love me and that I am everything you want and make you truly happy
I cannot tell if you are trying to convince me of those words

Or yourself
Short but hey lookey here freeverse! Shocked? I decided to make it a point to write more poetry this way and make myself grow as a writer.

I always feel two steps behind
No matter what the topic at hand
Even things I'm sure that I'm sure of
You can break down that certainty
Within seconds

Make me doubt the person
That I know myself to be
I dare you
Convince me that I am someone else
Because I'm stubborn until I'm afraid

Afraid to be laughed at
Afraid to be judged
Afraid to be made into a fool

So I take the initiative and laugh it off
Because declaring "I'm just an idiot",
"I don't know anything about anything"
Or simply keeping my mouth shut
Is far easier than hearing it elsewhere
Self-deprecating as **** but truee

It is not the truth if I have to convince myself,
it isn't a choice if I have to make one,
it's not love if it's forced,
but is it even sadness anymore when it becomes a reality?

O God !! I can't convince and
they can't feel......
Change their hearts if
You won't change my tongue

Somehow,
in the first meeting
you managed to convince me
what I needed
was you-
without any convincing
at all.

And i sail to the breadth of the sky
walk away from the star not even with goodbye
cause there's no hello at the very first
Just like the dust that passed by
yet craved by the flowers
convincing.

She said She doesn't wanna talk
I waited for her to look back

I tried convincing her
She showed me her *******

I only ask you not to go blind on hatred
Be kind though we got parted
We all have misunderstandings, different opinions which leads to hatred. Be kind to everyone even if you hate them.
