Everything around me doesn’t make sense.
Everyone I know seems to no longer matter.
Every time I hear your name it makes me tense.
Everything I believe in is starting to scatter.
Ending the cycle of the past to indulge in the future.
Ending the pain in order to feel the light.
Ending the darkness and everything close to her.
Ending the blindness so that I may know sight.
Moving through life just to get nowhere.
Moving around just to meet no one new.
Moving through motions trying to get somewhere.
Moving into the nothingness that I always knew.
Meeting my soul mate who really wasn’t true.
Meeting the same rejects in a different place.
Meeting the friends that I thought I always knew.
Meeting myself and seeing my soul face to face.
Over and again I see the pain.
Over and again I feel the light.
Over and again I know better.
Over and again I do what I know is not right
Only I can make the change.
Only I can clear my plate.
Only I can make sense of what seems strange.
Only I can alter this emotional state.
