Conversing With Myself - Poem by Lauren Phillips

i see
what you couldn't see
i feel
things you couldn't feel
i hear
words you couldn't hear
i understand
what you misunderstood
i love the things
you couldn't love
i appreciate
what you left unappreciated
i dream
the dreams you never dreamt
i forgive the people
that you wanted unforgiven
i care about everything
that you ignored
i don't hate the enimies
that you dispised.
why, you ask?
because i
am not you
anymore.
