Somehow it still hurts
Not belonging to someone
I have tried being okay with it
But there is something in me that craves commitment
Is it the fear of being alone?
The fear of losing ones mind?
I think if you are alone enough
You see yourself too clearly
And everything you have done
Is naked before you
You look yourself in the eye
And you cry
Trying comfort yourself
As only you can
That’s the way things have gone for me.
And in my order.
You meet someone.
Change your mind.
But i know that are we not just bodies
Trying to cling onto other bodies
While our minds run away.
Our spirits, our souls.
Change with each encounter
And i don’t know who I am becoming anymore.
I don’t know if it’s me
But what would I be without all these mistakes?
All these decisions to connect?
You and I are constantly running away from truths
That we know deep in ourselves
Because honesty with self is too hard.
And it’s become a habit
Loving a friend as more than one
And not seeing anything beyond that.
I haven’t ever had anything beyond that.
More than friends with benefits
When the only real benefit is a delusion of a relationship.
We get to feel all the emotion without the commitment
And I have sold myself the lie that I don’t know what I want.
I like to think that I want to belong to someone.
I like to think that I can wait for that.
I have learnt that I can’t.
So I will keep thinking
Convincing myself that I am okay
My time, energy and money
On things that fill me empty
Leave me hollow
Wanting more flesh
To be more full of something worth anything more than what I am right now.
And if you are honest
What void are you attempting to fill?
Because late night poetry
Songs into the darkness
In the quiet
Help no one
Yet we still do this
Its empty release
By an incomplete person.
