To the next person who cares


Yes I know I am a lot to handle

I will ask the same questions




I am insecure and I think-I know

 I am not good enough for you

I will be dependent upon you

You will be the only light in my life

I will get to be too much

Because one second I'm too clingy

But the next I'm pushing you away

I want you to know

It's not you because it's me

It's not your fault I'm unhappy 

I often fall into the depths of depression

And I will want-need you

But I will be too much

Because the blades biting my skin

Will be more important than the kisses you plant there

You plant the seeds for happiness

But I don't know how to water them correctly

Because I've learned through the years

That you can't water happiness with tears

Everyone has left

I won't let my guards down

But if I do..if I become vulnerable 

Please don't make me regret it

Because I always have before

To the next person who cares about me..

I'm sorry

      Melancholy.. passionate, and engaging. A heartfelt poem on the edge of the precipice of emptiness.
