your perfection

Dragging me along
When I clearly don’t belong
Only furthers the hurt
We’re both in
It’s not going to work
It hasn’t worked
It isn’t working
I’m tired of pretending I’m ok
When it’s so clear I’m not
I’m tired of this
Yet here I stand
I just want to scream
“can’t you see”
Yet my sanity returns
And calms me
So I bite my tongue
Until the feeling is gone
And passed away
While the hurt crashes into me
Like a wave into the sea
This happens over and over again
Until I’m nothing but a shell of what I was
A glimmer of hope passes in the air
It shows what I want to be I have to let it pass because
On the outside I’m what you want me to be
