Breakaway

Over and above the fact that I have been quite sick over the past weeks, I did say I was feeling very underwhelmed by people.

And it is very natural for me, you know, drifting away, to selfishly spend time with me.

I owe the broken parts of me a break. A break from interacting with people to restore my soul again and gain have some peace of mind.

I suppose I should’ve been a lot more descriptive about what I meant by being underwhelmed, however, I was rather irritable by our last few conversations… they were nothing to ride home about.

What you perceive as no longer being interested in you, was just me feeling pure frustration.

And I can’t fault you,

you were supportive, however, I didn’t need support, I just needed someone who understood.

I am weary and you’ve worn me out.

Still Picture

The words I write aren’t just letters on a page.

They’re still pictures constantly flickering, depicting blinding realities of my future.
