saying it for your own good…

images-57

I’m saying it for your own good…

Draining

Painstaking…

…I can’t be responsible for what you do…

Played my part, the rest is on you.

Projections of your mind…

Past and present all entwine…

Infact let’s rewind.

You’ll find,

I’m tired…

…past your sell-by date, expired.

Now that I understand why…

…all the differences…we collide…

Common ground wasn’t enough to keep us side by side.

I feel so much inside…

Tellling no lie,

Baring all, what is there to hide?

Once again shadows from the past come out…

…and shout.

Hey look here, unresolved wound.

Here again, way too soon.

Don’t know where to go, what to say,think or do…

Still in a perpetual haze…

Aware of your critical gaze

…all-consuming and observant of my own place…

…in this maze.

Was I wrong?

Subjective, a matter of perspective…all along

One thought on “saying it for your own good…”

  1. An excellent poem… the temporal game is very well shown here… they way past and present are intertwined…not to mention their influences upon feelings ….I truly liked it.
