Can you tell me how you feel? I mean tell me how you feel when your eyes are closed and you become nothing but sound. Tell me about the melancholy hidden behind the breaths you take. What is it that I will find after digging out the sandy layers to your soul? Can you tell me how you feel? I mean tell me how you really feel when your eyes are closed and you become nothing but sound. Tell me why the echoes of your voice crack every time you sing the song of life. Just tell me how you really feel. Tell me how to find you underneath all of these layers. I want to find you. I want you uncovered. Just you. Can you tell me how you feel?
I’m sorry our story didn’t last as long as it could have. I hope that you’ve been feeling lighter since we’ve parted ways. I hope light has found its way to you. Sometimes I think I should have tried harder. Sometimes I feel like I failed you, like I could’ve put more effort into tending to the garden we called a friendship. I still wrestle with those feelings today, even though I know a lot was truly out of our control. There were chains we couldn’t break, and walls we couldn’t walk through. In the end, I just hope you’re smiling. That’s all that matters to me.
You are your biggest priority. What everyone else is doing is none of your business, focus on your own goals and your own aspirations. You have the biggest impact on your life, you decide how you think, feel and act. Do not give anyone else this power. You are your best friend and greatest enemy, it is up to you where you take things.
