Your Conscience is right 99.9% of the time. Don't let your heart try and tell you otherwise.

Is It I?
an awk hint
Is it wrong for me to write
About an imaginary fight
That took place only in my head,
But left me alone once more in bed?
Is it strange for me to think
That I have finally reached the brink,
That I have taken all I can take
Of lying in silence, wide-awake?
Is it insane for me to pen
That my heart has been scarred again
From being held high, then plunged so steep
Into a pit where there is no sleep?
Is it absurd for me to speak
To strangers who’s open minds are weak
And know nothing of how my heart is entwined
To one, more young and blind, of its kind?
Is it healthy for me to try
To make my pain and suffering pass by
With haste, by trying my very best
To put my questioning mind to rest?
Is it normal to reject embrace
From nightmares I am forced to face,
To think of them as fake hands dealt
That cannot be true, alive, or felt?
Is it right that I feel shame
And bear the burden of all the blame
For ever thinking I am naïve
And being toyed with by one claiming to love me?
Or--- is it you, my dear,
Whose lies have hindered my heart to hear
My conscience screaming the truth to tell
Of how, in my dreams, the answer does dwell.

We tend to give too much credence to our miseries and what goes inside our heads. We begin to think that our emotions are who we are and we feel like victims.
Being human we are drawn to chaos but hopefully we grow away from it after we've matured to a point.
You speak what many people feel.
Feels good to share eh?
