Self Analysis 20 de 5

Written by: Nicholas Westerhausen

Where are you?
Where could you be?
I feel all alone
Without you here next to me.

I want you back.
You presence comforts.
Why did you abandon me
Here in this lonely, poor state?

You had to get.
I know why you did.
For your health and well-being.
The doctors will heal you.

I worry for you
In my loneliness.
I can deal with this.
You should not mean so much.

But you do, and I don't understand.
My own heart betrays
My own knowledge.
How can this be?

How can you mean
So much to me?
We have been friends.
We have been sister and brother.

Small things like that
Offer no proof for my
Unsettled self-misgivings.
I am in love, as I feared.

Here I'm bound
By my will.
To you, your love.
I'm sorry to do this to you.

I hate to hurt you.
If I am, please release me.
You are the only one who can.
I no longer have any ability.

No more skill.
No more motive--save one.
You could use my potential,
You could use me.

Use me for gain.
Use me altruistically.
Any use by you
Is good use to me.

I appreciate your kindness.
I truly love you.
Please excuse my humanness,
It really is quite contrived.

My only real self is me,
And I am hard to find.
