How

How can I be so smart with ways to convince myself it doesn’t hurt
Convincing everyone else I’m fine
But so dumb for doing it to my self

How do I tell the people I’ve lied to for so long
That I need a new heart
That everything wasn’t fine
That I can no longer feel

I’m not even sure I can pick up the pieces
It’s not like it just happened
It’s been chipping away at me for so long now

How do you tell the person you love
You have to love yourself
