I get these feelings inside my head I'm sure you'll understand
and even if I say I don't need you, I need you by my side
I wish I could help myself and from the monsters hide
but I can't so please tell me it's OK, be there to hold my hand.

You say you love me but these monsters scream "no"
and slowly my mind and heart they crack
I then withdraw my feelings that's when I really need your back
as I say it's "me not you" beginning to let you go

so if I say I don't love you please remember what I've said
because I love you dearly and I hope you know
as getting close and compassion are a no go
these thoughts just swirl off my tongue because of the monsters in my head.

    Monsters in your head. I think everyone has them at some point in their lives the secret is recognising them for what they are and trying to chain them up. Very enjoyable read. Milly x

    It would just take one understanding person to crack the code eh? But to do that you'd have to let them in ... vicious cycle :-(
    A sad but excellent piece Em x
