A Terrible Thought - Poem by Hopeless Heart
This thought poisons my mind
A terrible thought that should not be,
A thought none should think
A lie of happiness, a false hope
The scar is seen by all
And people assume the worst
But are they right to assume?
For them to think those thoughts of you?
They do not know you
As they think they do,
For you have changed
But they have not seen
For they do not want to see
To see, what you have come to be
For they would rather see the old you
The you that does not think those thoughts
For if they knew you as you do
A tear would fall upon their check,
A sad song would play in their heart,
And a reason for your thoughts would be seen
But no one notices
That you have changed,
For as they do not want to see
You do not want to show
For you are scared
Of what they may think,
Will they think badly of you?
Or will they see reason?
You do not want their pity
Only their support and understanding,
But is it possible
For them to understand all you feel
For not even you understand
The complexity of your feelings,
For it is not as simple
As reading a book
So this thought is not so simple,
It does not have a simple reason,
Or a simple solution,
It will slowly pass
Or it will engulf all of you
Until you have forsaken it all,
All the pain and joy
And you are no more.
