psychosomatic wounds to the heart.

"let's compare scars, i'll tell you whose is worse" 

why do you do this to yourself?
time and time again you've told yourself to be stronger,
but time and time again you have failed.
you should be used to this.

you loan your heart out so freely to others,
always wishing for the best,
you feel too deeply,
for strangers and friends alike.

please don't despair,
words are just...words.
they cannot hurt you (yet they do).
they tear tiny little holes in your heart.

but then again,
that is your own fault,
for feeling too much,
for seeing ghosts in hidden corners,
for hearing whispers where there is only wind.

so i ask again,
why do you do this to yourself?
you have only yourself to blame.
