Unbearable truth n°7:
I cannot reach you. No matter how close I hold you, no matter how our tears mingle, no matter the words we scream to each other. No matter how it hurts to love you. I cannot reach past your skin, past your eyes, past your fake smiles, past everything in you that wants to keep me away.
And if you could open up so much that your mouth, your eyes, your arms would tell me all about you, would never lie, how would I go past my own skin, past my own eyes, past my own fake smiles which keep you safe away from me?
And when I know most than you need someone to make you feel strong again, to tell you you're not alone and it's okay to cry, I stay away. For I cannot do more being close than far away and it pains me less not to let you know
that I cannot reach you.
