be me

my trust in you fled long ago,

when your careless words

sliced me deep, embarrassed me,

made me feel ashamed of me

now, after so many years,

I can’t find the desire to try

to want to trust you again

you were meant to be my forever

but now that seems like a prison

clipping my wings,

shaming my passion,

putting me in a box of your closed mind

but my fire is burning the box from within,



it will consume me

I will shed my shackles

and be me.

Perception vs Reality

It can be really hard to remember this sometimes…when it feels as if you’re floundering, not sure where you should be going, whether your life is “where it’s meant to be”…and it can still feel like that, it’s ok to feel that, as long as you remember that other people are probably feeling that way too.
