Don’t try to understand me

twisted-tree

You!…Yes you….

Trying to creep and trying to crawl,

within the folds of my pathetic being

Trying to wear and trying to open,

my torn skin and my eyes unseeing

 

 

You!…Yes you….

Don’t try to understand me,

for I am all twisted inside

I am a tree struck by lightning,

once, twice, thrice and yet again

I stand strong, towering over all,

but the strength is what I feign

 

 

You!…Yes you….

Don’t try to love me,

for I am all broken inside

I am a mirror – my shiny surface,

broken into a million shards

I glimmer – blinding you all,

but I never show my cards

 

 

You!…Yes you….

Don’t try to be kind to me,

for I am but a black hole

I am a sun – my burning fires,

stoked by a billion sins

I shine brightly, warming you all,

but nurture a coldness within

 

 

You!…Yes you….

Trying to creep and trying to crawl,

within the folds of my pathetic being

Trying to wear and trying to open,

my torn skin and my eyes unseeing
