introspection

i look at you

and

i do not know who you are

~ anymore ~

~

what

i do know

is

you are not the person you used to be

~

i do not know

if i should love you,

hate you,

admire you

or

abhor you.

i know nothing.

some contrast…

~

some

would say

i wear my darkness well

~ too well ~

in fact…

this may very well be true

but

without

‘some’

darkness for contrast ~

how will one ever see

my light shine through?

her life

~

she swims in a maelstrom of emotions ~

doing her best to stay afloat

~ existing ~

~ living one day at a time ~

muddling

through

a mindless muck

of

this

and

that

conflicted

~

i look down at the table

and

see a salvo of crumpled paper ~

nothing worth anything

but

failures of thoughts and sentences…

i wonder…

why am i writing?

…or…

~

sometimes

i stand outside of myself

wondering

what do other people see ~

do they read beneath the words i write

or

sit beside me while i dream?

~

can i be seen for the person i truly am

or

the person i want to be

or

do they only see what they choose to see

and

dismiss the isolated

parts

i strive to set free?

always… always… always…

~

i am always dancing in my head ~

it seems…

never sitting…

never standing… still…

always spinning

and

leaping…

always leaping…

always

trying to find that place in the air

where i can land ~

indefinitely!

to mesmerize me ~ be yourself

to tantalize me ~ be yourself

to satiate me ~ be yourself

to challenge me ~ be yourself

to love me ~ be yourself

to complete me ~ love me

times like these…

~

many times i struggle with my sense of self ~

feeling frustrated,

useless,

sorry

and

sad

~

i can lack bubbles in the bottle,

see thru shades of gray,

and

dig holes

way

deep

into

the

ground

~

it is who i am,

sometimes,

and

i am not particularly fond of this girl

but

she is

who

i

have

to live

with

in this

ever-changing

world
