kidding myself

when I am unwilling to reveal my struggles 

sacrificing you for my discomfort 

when I offer you on the altar of my ego

when my hidden suffering is quietly spilling over 

threatening to drown you

when I avoid what you reflect

and you have to take on what was

not planted in your soil 

not grown in your garden

I am merely surviving

treading water to nowhere

not getting away when running

standing still when moving

out of courage 

and masquerading my soul

Wolfgang Lee moving from the heart, musings
