Would I feel better if I scream out your name in the middle of the night
with no context?
The pain inside me that I feel ever so often, would it vanish with your name in thin air?
Would it hurt less if I just say out loud what’s going on in my head?
Or would it be senseless
since I’m merely unknown with those thoughts myself?
Would it be sincere to put you on the pedestal while blatantly ignoring my own existence,
So you’d feel better?
The love you show me with every little gesture,
would it still remain even if I didn’t?
