I did not place these thoughts in my head
Or these feelings in my heart
So where did they come from?
AM I predisposed to being a disappointment?
Can I keep it at a distance,
Or am I destined to be swallowed by
These unfamiliar places that my mind has wandered?
Have genetics betrayed me,
Leaving me stranded in the space between my head
And my heart?
Does speaking make it real?
Does silence solve the issue?
I know how it ends
But where do I start?
