i need you to know
that i am emotionally independant.
i want to be with you all of the time
but that is not reality.
i miss you when im not with you
but that doesnt seem enough to you.
even when you say its ok
you seem to be pushing me.
things have happened very fast
and i am only protecting myself.
i have broken my own rules,
i have exposed myself too freely,
and i need a little space.
space does not equal break
unless you decided it does.
but i can not wake up everyday
i can not go back to hinging
the way i feel
on another persons company.
because one day, if or when your gone
where will i be?
i dont want to be lost
i have found myself
and it is important to me
to remember who i am
i am not part of a set
i stand alone and can still be whole
i love that about me
and i dont want it to change.
i need to slow down.
i need to be able to breath
i can feel that you feed off of me
and im flattered to be that for you
but id lile to keep some of me for myself.
understand when i need time
understand that i like my space
understand that instead of speeding through this and getting there faster...
were going to fast and were going to crash.
slow down with me
lighten up about it
take the moments we have as opportunitys
instead of necessitys
i dont know
not sure how you will feel about this
but i love who i am
and maybe, i need to spend some time with myself alone sometimes.
