You are not for me… What made you doubt yourself & filled you with self loathing?

You are not for me

Your petals open
Your beauty is formed in full
I don’t feel worthy enough
To look upon you at all

It’s not as if I am the sun
It’s not as if I am special
So I linger longingly, but I will not stay
Destiny shall have its way

I shall hold this moment in my heart
I shall fade away and make a new start
For you are not for the likes of me
A fact that only you couldn’t see

    How beautiful … these verses really resonated with me:
    So I linger longingly, but I will not stay
    Destiny shall have its way
    All the best to you. Aquileana 🙂

  2. Sad, but beautifully expressed Pete.

      Thanks, Andrea, I have been looking at songs and scribbles that I wrote when I was a teen. The teenage me was strong in many ways, but still full of childhood doubts and fears. It was kind of inspired by those honest and raw words that I had almost forgotten. 🙂

  3. We all have doubts about ourselves and wonder if we could be better. I understand the longing and being able finally to understand that you have to be true to yourself. Nice write 🙂
