I’ve been trying inside to heal Trying less and less to feel Having the sudden notion To shut down every emotion Slipping farther n farther away Into the great and vast array Sitting pretty, proud, and poised Blocking out the senseless noise Giving up the pointless need To let others see me bleed My pen and paper are enough No need for feelings on my cuff This world needn’t know Where all my sorrows go With nobody standing in my way I’ll stand tall for another day Lips pursed and fists held tight They’ll never know my inner fight
I’m thinking about people today, some of the ones I know and some I don’t. And I wonder why there are some, who never seem to respond, while others are just so willing to give everything. I have days when I can’t speak because I feel like everything will just come out wrong. Do you ever have days like that? Sometimes I just want to be alone with my thoughts. People take a lot out of me, I often feel their emotions weighing me down.
There are so many facets of love Is there any way to fully understand them all? Unfortunately, love doesn’t come in a one size fits all sort of box It doesn’t come wrapped in perfection and realistic expectations Love is often messy and not very well thought out at all It’s an emotion that often takes us by complete surprise And there never seems to be an explanation for how it starts The line between love and hate seems to be easily bridged We see this when we dislike someone one day and love them the next And the funny thing is, we don’t get to choose who we’re going to love In fact, it seems that love chooses us; it always has and always will We are helpless to resist the power of love even though we often try And running away from love seems to be the worst thing we can do Love will always find us, no matter where we try to hide Go ahead and try it if you don’t believe this to be the truth Just accept the fact that love will never make sense and it doesn’t need to The only thing you need to worry about now Is how you’re going to begin to let love in.
