I love me

leave a comment

i love me
i used to, anyway
i so much want to be normal
with “normal” feelings
and normal fears
i have been better
i don’t know anyone
anyone real
they’re just words
they aren’t real people
i miss people
yet I’m scared of them
scared of what they make me
what i make me
i am by myself
even with ofliers i
i am inside myself
fighting to get out
fighting with me
i want to
i can’t
i can
i don’t want to
i must
must i?
i thought i could
i guess i’m just destined to be alone
Within myself
my only friend
fighting to get out
be normal
be anything
but i’m not
‘ i’m nothing
i’m myself
when all you do is look inward
you miss out on everything outside
that’s me
that’ s who i am
how i am
what i am
i Wish it were different
it wont be
this is how i am
by myself
late at night
talking to words
instead of people
staying inside to talk to words ‘
instead of
going outside and talking to people
i wish i could
so much fighting
i am the enemy
looking inwards
its a damn lonely place
inside of yourself
thoughts echo
emotions multiply
pain increases
i am bouncing around inside myself
looking for an opening
alas, there are so few
and when i find one
somehow the inside looks a lot better
less complicated
and still i bounce
inside myself
words are a Way out‘?
and yet
they are only words
Written communication
so shallow
a quick bounce past them
there’s no one here
no one inside of me
in my heart
in my soul
not even me
Where have they gone?
i am all alone
