A poem about getting others to understand your thoughts when you can't quite understand your own, and dealing with conflicting thoughts and internal struggles

You always ask me what's wrong

but you could never see

the cause is so obvious

that it's killing me.

It's the reason you're still here 

holding me close,

it's the reason I lie awake at night

from dusk till' dawn.

It's why I pull you near

when I really just want to be alone,

and smile when I want to cry.

It's way down deep inside of me,

it's myself vs. me.

It's the reason I feel so at war,

fighting for both peace and conflict,

fighting for that middle ground.

It's the reason I hide myself away 

from everything I know

only to dwell on everything I hate.

You make things sound so simple,

'Just tell me what's on your mind'

but you can't understand

it just isn't that easy.

It's like a road block in my mind

or a dead end street,

the zone is off limits 

to everyone except me.

All the thoughts torture me

but refuse to come out,

they make sense in my head,

but the spoken word can never set me free.

These are the reasons I can't quite explain,

and I only wish you could understand them anyway.

I don't want you to leave,

out of my life or away from my side,

I just want someone who will accept

both myself and me,

despite how confusing they can be.
