The Games We Play

The games we play

When we don’t know what to say

Other than the truth because

We often let our fears get in the way

 

The games we play

When we know how we feel

But let the complexities of life

Build and foster within us unnecessary strife

 

The games we play

As we pretend to others and within ourselves

That what is going on around us has no affect

When the truth is, it is making our hearts bleed

 

The games we play

When we let our selfishness get in the way

We don’t take the emotions of others into play

Causing fractures in our relationships

That sometimes lead to the sinking of the ship

 

Should you decide to play games

With the emotions of others

Don’t say I didn’t warn you

So be true to yourself and don’t do to others

What you don’t want done unto you.

Real or Imaginary?

Daily Prompt: Imaginary

Am I real or imaginary?

Can you see me?

Can you hear my voice?

Can you feel my skin so moist?

Am I even really here?

……………………………………………………………..

I try to reach out but it’s like I’m not even there

Sometimes I wonder if you really care

Then one day it hit me

There are no images in this house of me

…………………………………………………………….

All this time I’ve been locked up in your mind

That’s why I was so hard to find

I’m a figment of your imagination

Imagine my frustration

…………………………………………………………..

Coming to the realization

I’ve never been real

That’s why I could never feel

I’m just imaginary.
