So many

Looking for something special.

And how nice that would be for them to get what they need.

But their wants and needs are not the same as yours.

So why do they want to lead you down the same path they have traveled on.

Just to be disappointed and hopeless.

So you didn’t go and the looks of confusion and frustration was all around.

But in the end it’s your story to tell and you who will go through many emotions.

But only when you are ready and it feels right to step out and make a move.

So yea

It’s true we don’t get along

Like day and night.

We’re so different

It hurts sometimes to see you doing so much more without me.

I’ve tried to reconnect but you push me away every time.

Saying what happened in the past is forgiven

But the future is not clear and it would be best if we live apart.

For we all just want a little peace around here.

With you

There is a lot of appreciation and care.

But that doesn’t mean everything is always clear.

There are great moments and then lots of silence.

So many thoughts wanting to be shared with you but instead they are pushed away.

Text being typed then erased crumbling the hope of getting through to you.

Seems well out of place.

So much confusion and frustration that the situation could just go south.

But you won’t explode or explain what’s up for you feel you maybe better off.

Just keeping quiet.

Because this happened before and it didn’t workout when you bottles it up inside for too long.

So now you just let it go and move on for it’s not worth stress.

I’m sure

There are many misanthrope out there.

And I’m pretty sure I’ve met some of them too.

You the ones that just come up to you and you smile and they glare at you.

But I’m sure some are hiding it well just to get by in the world.

But once they are behind closed doors they ignore everyone and everything.

Only to be seen once Monday comes around.

And then it’s glares and soft spoken words of why do humans exist and why won’t they all just leave me alone.

So

Calm before I have to face the world

Where wearing a mask is the new normal.

My eyes will be all you see

As my smiles hides behind my mask to only to be seen in the safety of my home or pictures.

I know this may all feel overwhelming but to be safe is all I look forward to.

As I work to help others and keep myself sane too.

May my calmness wash over others as the year slowly but surely comes to an end.

As we get through August and hope for a next fall season.
