Dreams & Delusions…

Lonely (Because of Me)

I want to talk to you,
But I don’t want
My stress to rub off on you,
To seem needy,
Or (worse) greedy.
I don’t want to use you,
Or to hurt you,
I want everything I say
To be true,
So I stay away
When I need you the most…
Both haunted and comforted
By our love’s ghost.

    • It’s not a good place to be, but it’s not okay to hurt anyone else either. :/

        Yeah, it’s tricky to make the distinction between being quiet and reaching out. I almost always wait too long and it kind of hurts on the opposite end.

      • Yup, and it’s double-edged… Say something, and hurt the ones I love, or keep it in and hurt myself… Almost every time I do say something I regret it, so I tend to do the same.

        Well, be nice to yourself when you get the chance, Antanya. That’s the best advice I’ve heard so far. ♡
