Reaching out... Must find some connection Find my people, find my tribe Find where I belong But I keep pushing you away Pushing you away Forgive myself... Be gentle and kind That’s what it will have to take For the cycle to break To stop me pushing you away (Come back to me someday..?) The demon in me... Misplaced anger turned inward Is never sated, will see me ruined Spoiler of friendships Just keeps pushing you away (I don’t feel I have a say) I cannot have that I am not worthy Time and time again I am so weary now Why am I still pushing you away? When all I want is for you to stay?

Oh Rod, this poem tells a story of personal torment so very well that I am at a loss for words!

Thank you for your kind comment. It's hard to make a good connection in life, and sometimes harder to keep that connection alive. I find it hard, at any rate! :)
