Fractured

Capturing what’s inside of me since I’ve been born has not only made me a hushed moron but also a pathetic writer. I always try to hide my sentiments from the world because I can’t show how weak I am to them. To the world, I am the strongest and a cold person who doesn’t feel a thing. Reality states the opposite!

 Running away from the world, wearing a mask in front of everyone reveals my true self in front of the people I love but miserably that doesn’t matter to them. It’s mundane. These senseless tears won’t stop themselves in front of those who really matter. And when I see myself from their eyes, I’m nothing more than a drama queen!

 I’m weak and helpless in front of these beloved souls. I’m feeble for them and because of them. All the façade and the drama vanishes and I am the real me in front of them who’s vulnerable and breakable like any fragile glass that desperately wants someone to save itself but nobody comes and there’re shards around, always…

    Tears are strength and those broken shards are a representation of the real you breaking out and that’s true power lovely! And that just shows by this powerful writing, this wasn’t drawn by infirm ink but rather a powerful pen. Broken shards are signs of an escape, not always a sign of defeat lovely!🌹. Be strong and stay strong.❤️

  5. it’s as if you reached right inside of me and pulled this out. I expressed this yesterday to one of my family, or should I say, broke down. Shards every where. I felt somewhat better just getting it out but the result was, as you so eloquently put it, “but nobody comes and there’re shards around, always…” 🙂

    The beginning of solution to a problem is sharing it with others. Besides, seeking for help when we are weak, is not a weakness, but strength – strength in character! Thanks for sharing!
