[193] Bittersweet Surprise

Can it be easy to feel?
Can it be easy to live?
Can it be? Can’t it be?

The way I see things
we’ve loved and we’ve lost
can you just tell me
what to think
cuz sometimes it gets
dark around here
and so hard to navigate
through these thoughts sometimes
I can try again but it ends up the same every time
it all gets longer and longer and longer and longer
I can’t seem to find an end

while I ask you to help me
another thought crosses my mind
why do I need another person
to tell me if I’m alive
why can’t I just feel what I’m supposed to
and never feel like I’m living a lie
lies memory dreams feeling
that’s all I seem to think about
I’m an extrovert’s nightmare
and an introvert’s delight
while I lay stuck in the middle
trying to be the average of the average’s
and writing a tale called
life: what a bittersweet surprise

  1. ‘why do I need another person
    to tell me if I’m alive
    why can’t I just feel what I’m supposed to’, may be a sense of validation, a sense of being loved! I don’t know, it baffles me as well.

  2. “Can it be easy to feel?
    Can it be easy to live?
    Can it be? Can’t it be?”
    Probably, but we certainly don’t make it easy, do we?!?! This poem reflected the complexities we always face as humans. Well written, thank you!
