I must be a pitcher with all these curve balls i throw.
Learning to give myself the love I've spent my whole life throwing at people who discard it.
Dissect my words and find a hollow phrase,
misinterpreted by my lips from my heart by way of the brain.
I continue to acquire experiences until love is obtained,
framed and hung in the hallways of my home.
Eyes like camera lenses, I photograph you into my memory.
My mind is such a dark room, so it’s easy for me to picture "Us" together.
"Us" being me and whomever I deem to be worthy,
of the love I have been throwing because people strike out so easily when it’s not easy.
But my arm receives message from my heart by way of the brain to keep throwing.
So I throw love, I throw stones, I throw a fit, I throw it back, I throw up and I throw down.
Because I don’t know the way ahead.
I can only show you the steps I've taken.
Trips, falls and slips included.
thanks to @unraeveling for the inspiration the mind behind the 3rd line.
