As quickly as things are given,
They can also be taken away.
Things that looked rudimentary in passing
Have since been redefined as complex.
You realise that in the moment of trying to define everything around you
You – around everything – became lost.
Raw and unapologetic
You reach out to tell me who you are not..
Not realising that without speaking you already gave away a lot of who you are.
Unashamedly, I challenge your imperfections..
The same perceptions that you’ve had
What makes you so.. Special?
Your words are volatile and they scream of a broken person.
I am here. I do exist – although it is probably easier for you to pretend that I don’t.
You no longer feature in the movie of my life – I mean, that can only be expected since it has been a while since I have featured in yours.
I don’t hurt, I’m not bruised and I no longer cry.
Where I need to be.. I am.
And as quickly as things stop
It’s unfortunate – You and I..
But such is life and you live and you learn.
But I am over it.
After having tried for so many years, it is time for me to step back and just.. Be.
So I have..
..And I am fine.
