Fragile Mindset

27

 

I just want to be someone who gives comfort,

but becomes misunderstood of being interested

I just want to tell them how special they are,

without a hint of malice or doubt

I just want to become a listener for them to feel,

that there is someone who’ll listen, 

and share and make it less of a burden

I just want to meet people genuinely,

to heal the broken trust of socializing,

and change the perspective of the inculcated fear

I just want to feel loved by a person who knows,

the history of my wounds that raised these walls,

which became difficult to tear apart

I just want to be ordinary and responsive,

but fail to reciprocate because the trust innate in me

is slowly fading

I just want to, but fail to. But I just want to, try too.
