Fleeing the Fake

Haunted by my thoughts
Questioning my actions
For I, utterly blind
One wanting to please
Make friends and family
Be loved and cared for
Walked the path
Of believer in humankind
The best of you
That perhaps doesn’t exist
I willed it to be so
But the blustery tornado
You twisted over feelings
A disingenuous performance
I ignored for the wish
That there was better beneath
Finally I accept
I am worth a diamond
Not the crystal that you are
I cut the cords that bind us
Free you and release myself
Making space for what I deserve
