Damaged

How do you feel?


 

Inner thoughts

are they real,

Are they mine…really?

Or just judgement calls,

beliefs or what I feel?

Listening to others voices,

choices, arguments…hate.

Have I become

too wrapped up in their lies,

manipulation and greed,

of what they project,

with their own

insecurities

so they can escape

from their own world.

into mine?

Damaged

and irreparable,

they seek solace

in another,

to share their sufferings,

and their own 

tragic fate.

Their feelings

embedded into mine.

They take over

cut my cords

of strength.

I offer them

another life,

a different outlook,

but they mock, 

take the piss,

ridicule,

take control,

Who’s damaged

in the end?
