Deep down is a flower desperately suffocating as it keeps missing the opportunity to boom. Faded deceptions that resurface daily as they really are reality. Staring in the mirror at a face deemed beautiful, confused on how one perceived this assumption, as real
Beauty boils from the inside first. Her inside is battling heartache, usery, emotionless interaction, lies, should I say more. A rose with many layers that you are willing to peel only for physical interaction. Yet you stomp out any opportunity for attachment. Made to feel crazy when seeking clarity as my emotions have now started to combine to you. Inside feeling like it was never anything more than that physical connection, makes sorrow appear across
My heart screen. Deep down is a flower desperately drowning as when the bud hits above water, the soil pulls it back down. Inside is a confidence she has that allows her to keep
Going. Then adversity reminds her where she falls everytime she tries. What does she do from here? She still wants you…how does she turn it off? Why can’t you see distance really causes rejection not resolution. Inside…she needs you.
