Being a brick and wanting to tell what I feel.

Like A Brick

By trulymadlynbsb

Like a brick, immovable

Spent years not talking

Alone, not connecting-- isolated

Just surviving, making life possible

People kept telling

"Honey, say something."

"Honey, say something." "Be yourself!"

"Honey, say something." "Be yourself!" "Don't be afraid, darling"

Two years passed

Left out of my shell

Went away from the internal hell

That kept me alive but unwell

Realized opportunities that left

Stories that never had an ending

Amazing people I've left hanging

Things that may happened instead

Today,

Today, Saw a post that said "Hooray!"

Today, Saw a post that said "Hooray!" "You've survived and here's your medal for today."

Today, Saw a post that said "Hooray!" "You've survived and here's your medal for today." "I'm proud of you, being alive is hard."

Tears fell, because surviving never felt okay.

Commented that there was nothing

To be proud of on doing nothing

That surviving with your demons

That surviving with your demons is aggravating, it loses you everything

Hoping for an actual and logical conversation,

Hoping for an actual and logical conversation, Was asked for a "rewrite", because my thoughts

Hoping for an actual and logical conversation, Was asked for a "rewrite", because my thoughts Are supposed to be positive only

Sad thoughts should stay in me, like my demons.

I guess there's no place for sad bricks like me

But all of my realistic thoughts won't stop

I'll heal every scar, no matter how painful it could be

I'm not going along with your be-positive-all-the-time trap.
