Comfort.

 


Please listen to “A Rose” by Thomas Newman while reading.

Thank you.

In my head,

I am always welcome.


I hate to be alone.
I am always surrounded.


Who’s there?
I am always known.


Oh, it’s just you.
I am always justified.


Don’t worry, I’ll keep you safe.
I am always protected.


It’ll be our little secret.
I am always hidden.


I won’t give you away.
I am always forgiving.


What shall we do together?
I am always persuasive.


Let’s go play!
I am always entertaining.


Can they play too?
I am always hesitant.


I’m so happy with you.
I am always loved.


Hey, where did you go?
I am always elusive.


What happened to my friends?
I am always concealing.


What are these scars?
I am always manipulating.


This isn’t fun anymore...
I am always right.


You’re scaring me...
I am always right.


Is this a dream?
I am always right.


Stop.
I am always right.


STOP IT.
I am always right.


I just want you to go away...
I can’t.








... because I am always “there”.

Will revise later.
Just a snippet from my deteriorating mind.
