The Scientist

Running in circles
Chasing in tails
Coming back
As we are

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be so hard

I'm going back to the start...

I don't want you looking into my notebook, into my laptop, into my newspaper, into my mind. I'm an intensely private person at times and I wish you respected that. But you never do, so maybe I should stop hoping that one day you will understand how much it hurts when you don't understand. Or attempt to not understand.

There are times that I will lay my head in your lap and let you peruse through it at will. I will let you stab me when you see something in my mind that you hate me for, something that you didn't like me to think. I will let you hug me when you read happy thoughts and glance at joyful photographs.

Let that time come, and it will, soon enough.

  2. Ujj, you're quite the bomb.

  3. I understand the need to keep things private...sometimes
    and i also understand how much it stabs you when the need is ignored, neglected!
    there's no1 who can relate more to this post than me!
