Skill of pretend

We’ve travelled the globe in search for belonging
The light in our eyes squandered
We’ve swapped ourselves for the skill of pretend

We’ve built wisdom
To the point of becoming giants
But we still felt small
Living the façade
Of a life forgotten

All to belong
All for love
What was
Left behind
Died in the fire of our unbecoming

My whole life
I was fighting these monsters
These thoughts of rejection
To the point of brokenness
Staring down my end
I realised in my loneliness
That these monsters are my only friends.
