Truth Thursdays: I See You

"I see you."

"Of course, you do see me. I am here in front of you."

I imagined that would be what you'd say when I tell you those two words. Of course. Now, I feel silly.

What you don't understand is that I see you and everything you do. I hear you and everything you say. But I don't "feel you." And by that I don't mean feel your presence and your existence, but I won't ever sympathize with you. I will never understand.

The world is not some big piece of clay that would mold itself around you, according to your liking. You cannot pick when to be thoughtful and when to be cheeky just because you like it. But then again, we both know that the world is unfair.

I may not see you all the time but when I do, my God, I see straight through you.

I guess when the higher powers asked me to pick my poison, I didn't go for alcohol or cigarettes. I went ahead and chose you.
