You can never know

by ღtheღcrunkღpirateღ

You can give me a sympathetic smile,
a hug and say
"i know how you feel."
but i don't think you do.
what i am going through is nothing you can imagine.

a tangled mass of memories, hopes, fears and emotions
that belong solely to me.

the fragments of the past captured and recorded in a way that only i can see.

the hopes for a brighter future that only i can long for.

the fear of the unknown possibilities, the unique "what ifs" that haunt me alone

the emotions attached once you combine all of the above that can only be experienced by me.

never tell me "i know how you feel"
I'm sorry but its just not possible.
