I don't like what I'm hearing, let's not play this by

Ear,

How do I face my emotions once they're mixed heavily

With fear?

How long have I been here? It's not suppose to end

Here,

The darker side of my reflection was never supposed to have been

Clear.

The awareness I raised, versus the standards I

Lowered,

If I'm always looking back how will I know when I'm moving

Forward?

You left me no option, so I chose not to be

Fair,

Many have toyed with my reserved heart, but you'll never play with the

Spare.

I can escape this triangle remembering the corners that I

Squared,

Is it too inhuman to admit that I needed to be

Repaired?

My motives remain unrelatable, due to the space I've

Created,

Do I "pump up this volume" even though I know you'll try to

Deflate it?

Even higher to new heights, do I have permission to rest up

Here?

Perhaps I'll understand "Pillow Talk" when I finally rest my

Ear.

Am I sheltered or just not accustomed to such

Luxury?

A kiss at a questionable expense, even though the hugs were

Free.

Hello fellow creators. In short I'm nothing more than a very big fan of this art form we all love called Poetry. Playing with words and thoughts, bending and twisting ideas is all part of this therapeutic yet challenging past time.
