Familia

I can’t give you what you want.
This is thought that echoes and ricochets off the meninges of my brain. There’s nothing I can do. I have made my choice, partly of convenience, partly of reason- mostly of the desire to be happy.
But you push your way in and subtly demand your keep, your wishes.
I have made up my mind, so don’t sully my journey. I have chosen my canvas, please don’t taint it before I begin.
It has taken a lifetime for me to want a life again. Your dreams are not mine; they kill me, silently drown me in tears and choke me with sobs.
Watch me varnish. Watch me smile. Watch me live.
…But let’s go running tomorrow. You’ll find your way.
