"Why do you feel angry? Is it because you failed to achieve some goal? Why do you feel lethargic and uninspired? Is it because you don’t think you’re good enough?" -Mark Mansion, Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

I’m tired.

I’m tired of
trying too hard
to be liked
or simply be noticed
by you.

Thinking about you
is akin to
consciously
actively
and consistently
stabbing myself
in the heart

On days
when I feel really down
I decide to reach out
And most often than not
We end up fighting a lot.

of you and me?

All gone

Sad, isn’t it?
The love,
The feelings
Everything I used
to feel with you
I can now only feel
through movies,
rhythm and blues

When someone comes
to tear you apart
There’s this place inside
A haven
A zen
Untouched by anyone
Unseen by no one
A place you ought to keep
Sanity to keep you safe
A person only for you
A you to run back to

tell her
that she's been through a lot
to be shaken by anything.

she knows that.

take things slow,
to have a clearer view
and be able to identify
what's the next thing to do.

don't dwell on the what ifs
as it would bring her
more of that
instead of accomplishing
one challenge into another.

she needs to be reminded
of herself.

Have you ever been
too sad to sleep
too mad to think
too lonely to talk
too empty to feel

I have run out of faith
I'm running out of words
I'm running out of will

I need to scream.

I wish I can cry
I wish I can get mad
I wish I'm not this sad

I wish I can be heard
I wish I can be seen

I wish it wasn't this bad

All these things
I wish for
All these things
and more

I’m done believing
in a better tomorrow.

I’m done believing
in a better relationship.

I’m done believing in you.

I’m done believing in us.

I am so tired.
I am so done.

It rises and it falls.
It comes and it goes.

The pain.
The hollowness.
The yearning.

Tonight, my heart dies
Tonight, my heart cries

My soul yearns for warmth
My soul screams for love
My heart cries out for peace once more.

On the edge I stand again
On the verge I cling to be sane
Deeper and darker,
my abyss calls again

Save me from this pain.

And realization suddenly hit
That the next time she leaves,
She won't look back,
She’s never coming back.

When you’re with
the wrong person
There is nothing,
no amount of reason
that can make you stay
Eventually it will hit
How you have been
wasting your life
wasting your love
wasting your faith
Trying to be with someone
Who you're so clearly
not meant to be with

I hate this place.
I hate who I’m with.
I hate my circumstances.
I hate being dependent.
I hate all of this.
I hate it all.

From one cage I flew out,
straight into another.

Some men
will work their life away
in order to provide
for a better future

and yet

neglect to be
in his family’s present
and forget
that he’s part
of that unit too

Some of the worst things
another woman can tell you:

-it is your job; some men will look at you and they can pity you and help you

-isn’t he the one providing? (said when sharing house chores was mentioned. does it mean i cannot ask for help because that’s out of his ‘providing job’?)

-suffer your own because your husband has a lot on his mind too

“I suffered so you should suffer too.”

I lie awake at night
Doing stuff to be thoroughly tired

Cos i really cannot deal
With all the thoughts
That pop in my head

Like blinding fireworks
They pop,
pop in my head

I need to be tired
So i can just fall asleep

No time for lingering things

No consciousness for stinging memories

No energy to be up
with my constantly
hurt feelings

Just because
we laugh together
doesn’t mean that
you know my hurts

Just because
i tell you my story
doesn’t mean that
you understand
my pain

Just because
you claim to love me
doesn’t mean that
you’re not the one
actively killing me

You don’t know
any of it.

You don’t know
how much it hurts

You don’t know
how long it stays

You don’t know
how much it takes

You don’t know.
The depth of my pain.

Everything is
well and okay

until
that moment
that split second

a thought
a flash
a face
a word
a name

and once again
I am reminded
of why i am hurting
of why i am broken
of why I am living
In this dark place
Within me

all it needs
is a chink in my armor
and all of me
washes away
fades away

over
and
over
again

This is
the never ending cycle
of you and me

I don’t know
how to feel
how to react
how to be
with the things you do
anymore

Getting mad
doesn’t yield anything
Screaming
doesn’t guarantee being heard
Keeping silent
makes us believe it’s all fine
Talking
has been proven futile
Crying
just wears my soul out

I feel so heavy
and so empty

You have put me
in this fucking
endless
limbo
