Seasons

Blizzard bitter cold

everywhere,

all emotions

frozen –

your warmth

changed it to

springtime

We laughed,

we cried,

emotions

never ran dry

But seasons change

so did you

Emotions have

frozen, numbing

like Iā€™m covered in snow

Not again

There she is now
standing behind me
Her eyes bore deep,
deep, into my soul
They make me restless
They ask questions
‘What have you done?
Our plans were different!
Why’ve you avoided me
for so long, all along?’
I try to scream, but cannot
I know I can never 
leave her behind
I turn, and I ask her
‘Don’t you think
that it is too late now?’
She answers, smiling
‘Just take the plunge, girl
and we’ll ride that tide.’
After a long time, I smile
I’d finally met myself again.

Mom, youĀ told meĀ love is strong

but Iā€™ve found more users than

people who willĀ love you back

And empathy for everyone

has drained and left me hollow

The story of theĀ Golden Goose

isĀ more applicableĀ in this world

Iā€™ve found many hiding their cruelty

in disguise, and pretending

If you care for others before yourself

you are the fool for someone to use

But, Iā€™veā€¦
