transient

you see demons behind all skins
i see a fey, tectonic soul
trying not to come apart
trying not to let you in

you are itching to move on
some can only hold on
and some of us won’t make it
lost in the gap of then and time

  1. I can relate to this on a personal level, having been in the past the kinda person who used to shy away from every opportunity to expose her heart and all the feelings in case she gets hurt. But now that you’ve said it, it’s equally true that other people might do the same or maybe the exact opposite either to shield themselves or to heal themselves.
    Loved it. ☺☺
