This here is another poem that I wrote. It’s not recent, but it’s also not super old. It was written nearly three years ago. Read it and weep.

I know that if I dwell
It'll only make me feel worse
Not a soul on Earth can tell
How just being myself feels cursed
Damned if I don't
Damned if I do
Nothing can prove
That I am good enough for you
So, back into this shell I'll go
Never again do I wanna let my guard down
Never envisioned myself the jaded type
But I can sense my heart becoming hard now
Still, I know I have so much love to give
It'd be stingy for me not to
But truthfully
I don't wanna give it to a man that's not you
Maybe that makes me stupid
Maybe I'll never learn
That even if I don't want to
Sometimes I gotta let it burn
