I attract bad people.


I attract bad people. 

It's like I wear perfume that screams take advantage of me. 

whether that be, lying, manipulating or plain cruelty. 


Bad people swarm me like flies on HOT food. 

Dishonesty, heartache and deadly bad moods. 


Bad people wrap me up in their warmth and affection 

I'm a sucker for what seems like a 'real connection'. 


But bad people, then do bad things that lead to bad feelings 

Though at first appealing... Bad people hold the feelings I am unluckily concealing.


I don't believe that these people are truly bad...but they sure act bad to me. 

I'm their placemat and their doorstop unfortunately.


I hold my hand up high and know that I am no saint.

But with my head held high, I have had very few complaints. 


I want to wash this odour off that leads me to shit places.

I want to scald my eyes out so I can see all people with two faces. 


I want to wear a shield of armour to ensure my peace protection.

I wish not to share affection with any false connection. 


I need a repellent so that bad people don't come near.

My heart is stitched with the patchwork cloth that wiped my every tear. 


Each time, I find that I am strong enough to climb. 

But this time that strength seems a lot harder to find. 


Your distrust, this pain the truth you hid from me. 

Has broken my heart and sense of reality. 


I'm weak and fragile my heart feels like it's numb. 

From such a strong beginning... look how far we've come.

    Well, I won't lie I think you do πŸ˜‰
    But some of those people have turned good!
    Ripped off their masks and shown all they could, like one man said "they say you can only reach up to Heaven, if your roots go to hell"

    You've captured a feeling I know so well and now I'm only 2 years away I understand one last quote I'd like to share, they say life begins at 40 before that you were just learning!

    You are an amazing soul and may find as i have, that many people can connect but we feel an emptiness.
    To keep living turth out loud with reflection upon one's self, may bring and lose a few crowds but only so we can find the ones that we see inside us!

    Keep going you will see
    The power in your Writing is Already manifesting

      I love that quote. Both of them, it fills me with reassurance.... I have another 19 years of learning haha!
      You’re right, I need to shine my light bright so all the right people can find me. Thank you, your support recently has been keeping me positive. ~E

        Wicked then live it up and rave on
        Or stop and find natures wonderful song

        There's so many roads to choose
        I'm only giving back what I've seen you do

        The first quote is Carl Jung, there is a psychologist in everyone.

        I see it on the site all the time, keep going you inspire people that can pretend not to notice.

        Much peace and respect
