It’s not easy

My scars say;
I know I’m not easy.
I’ve learned the hard way
Just how to deal with time
In my own strange way
When I’m- all by myself
But I really don’t want to be
And it’s been such a long time
Somethings are hard for me to tell
And over the years I’m sure
I’ve been hurt- as much as you but
You really can’t expect me to understand
When you get so close I forget who I am
And I can’t read what you need or don’t
When everything else remains between us
Cause you keep it guarded inside yourself
Until you let go of what’s holding you back
The best that I can do, is walk along a bit
We’ll never know, but I’d like to
I’m afraid a little less with you
I try understanding, over and over again
I’m filled with questions I silence
I try listening the best I can
I remain honest even in my quiet
Somethings I don’t want to learn all over
The lessons that wrecks my heart
I want to run, but I’m still sitting here
Sometimes- I really don’t know
Who it is you’re talking to
Is it me or is it someone else?
I don’t want either you or I
To be another mistake we’ve made
And hurt again one more time
I’m willing to share my journey
If you can dare to walk … with me

if you live
you breath and bleed
you lead to pain
today tomorrow
joys and sorrow
what and who defines
you is in your midst
choose well
spend time
in the universal mimes~
