I am so bewildered my thoughts are perfectly clear.
Please go away because I need you near.
Don’t touch me while you are holding my hand.
Listen, while I explain what I don’t understand.
You’ll find only truth, in all of my lies.
As I smile at you, from behind crying eyes.
These tears you see running down my dry cheeks,
only prove to deepen, my shallow insecurities.
Please know, I’m just a simple complicated woman,
dying in this life, the only way that I can.
Holding on tightly as I let it all go,
one day at a time, for weeks in a row.
Finding myself, waving hello to the final goodbye.
My feet firmly grounded, my eyes on the sky.
