Three Word Wednesday- Renewed

People say I’m two sides of the same coin
Mercurial and hard to pin down
These are the people
Who don’t know me
Kindly refrain for pigeonholing me
I am lighthearted most of the time
I don’t want to seem melodramatic
But like everyone
I hide my inner thoughts
And when depression gets me down
 When I’m spiralling down that hole
I cut myself off from friends
Protecting them from me
And my dark mood
Until I’m me again
Positive and renewed.

  1. I think you are kind and far from mercurial - it takes a loving soul to step back and protect others from our darkness

  2. I so relate to this..
    Off late people ask my best friends , why i am so aloof and thankfully my friends know to tell, i am finding myself on my own :)

  3. I so relate to this poem :)
    This is a part of my own heart.

  4. could one...could relate with reality around

  5. "I cut myself off from friends
    Protecting them from me" So many people do that... .This is when you need that friend the most. Cut yourself off from acquaintances! Well done!!!
