…When the heart screams

“We deny more than we confess. We hide more than we reveal.
We assume because it makes us feel exposed if we have to ask.
It’s easier to say “I feel nothing” than to admit “I feel something.” It takes no
courage to say, “I hate you” but it takes a great deal of courage to declare its opposite.

Masks are elaborate and everyone has one. It takes a while to get to know people.
This doesn’t make them special, it makes them like everyone else. Sometimes our hearts
scream yes while our heads say run; and only one can be obeyed.”

  2. True true and true.

    Vision field through little holes
    hold us from seeing the world.
    To sturdy our stubbornness has made
    the mask that only cracks when we hit a wall
    denying its existence we walk on
    around on a path of oblivion
    to face the truth once more.

    Ooh I can use this. thank you for the inspiration.
