The Voices Inside My Head

I am a whirlwind of emotion

I look for signs that don’t exist

And I end up breaking my own heart

 

I overthink

And overlove

And care too much

And spend too much time

Pleasing everyone else but me

Maybe someday I will love myself

As much as I love others

 

But I like being vulnerable

I like wearing my heart on my sleeve

I like putting everything I have into love

I guess you could say 

I deserve the pain

Because I set myself up for it

I know things won’t change

But I can’t bring myself to do

What I know needs to be done

So I continue to wallow 

And let the voices inside my head

Drive me insane
