Water falling down my face, in my head I’m confused

I thought I did things right, but I’m all alone and feeling used

Emotionally, mentally, even physically abused

I had everything to give, and also everything to lose

I open up my home, and they became thieves in the night

I woke up and didn’t notice, all I see is the sun shining bright

The birds are singing, grass is greener, in my own perception

Rainbows and butterflies painted for a planned deception

I try to see the positives, I’m vulnerable, I guess

After taking all my goods, I’m treated peasant-like at best

Just like a flower with nectar, the bees like to swarm

But they all fly away after I’m wilted and I’m worn 

The goal is to get the best of me, and I feel they always win

They practice throughout the year, we race, and then they win again

You’d think I’d get the jist of things, you’d think I’d have a clue

But every time I look into a grey sky, it always seemed to be blue. 

I’d blame it on my heart, and I’d call it mighty kind

But when reality hits, I’m sure I just preferred to be blind

I’m beginning to think I’m foolish, I’m beginning to feel real dumb

I can’t follow my heart, because my body is going numb.

I want to freeze my emotions, I want to set my chest’s temp to cold

But Yah blessed me with this heart of mine made of sparkling liquid gold.

I don’t know why He did that... I don’t know why He chose me

If I was sure of anything, I might not know the plan, but His Plan already knows me.

Great, gentle, and bold expressions all in one. Underrated emotions to be sure, and good poem to express them in.
