I see you, do you see me?
I’ve been trying to get your attention all day.
I need you to know me, and I need to know you
But I close the curtain and let you see what I choose.
My greatest fear is isolation,
Yet, its this fear that I’m causing by hiding.
I’ve opened myself up to others,
and have been hurt.
Should I let those who hurt me dictate who I should trust?
I know that I’m not alone,
But it doesn’t stop me from feeling it.
I feel like the colour orange in a monochrome image,
It’s beautiful, but doesn’t fit in.
I’m angry too,
At the past, at those who hurt me, and myself.
I want to let go and move on,
But I seem to get more stuck, the more I attempt to get free.
Why does life have to be like this?
Will I end up stronger?
Is it worth enduring?
