…And they claim to love me for who I am, but, I don’t even know that myself.
There used to be a dichotomy between my wants and needs, but now, that too has been blurred.
There was once a place I called home, but now, I stand, lost and on my own.
I swear I tried to be someone, but, it’s much easier being no one.
I think I’ve forgotten where I’ve come from, I need to be reminded of who I am..
Who I used to be.
