I just want to be honest & real
with people, but I’m afraid.
I know I see through people’s facades
or fronts, yet I hesitate to mention
or talk about it. As they don’t
volunteer such “private” feelings
with me, either, so easily.
Yet we don’t communicate with
“real” feelings. I know I shut
down–at least, partially– when
painful feelings arise, esp, unexpectedly.
I need to be gently led into & through
them and most people aren’t
aware (or skilled) of my sensitivity.
Yet, it shouldn’t be so painful
to be real, to say what you think
and feel, as long as it’s not hurtful
There won’t be a need for this one day
as we’ll all communicate mind
to mind (or heart to heart) and nothing
will be, or could be, hidden. But all
the negativity will be gone from
us at that point–we will be
totally loving beings–no
possibility for hurt will
Still, I know people are
open & intimate with each
other and trust is not an
issue or such an issue.
