I Wonder Why by StormSage

You leave me feeling
Like a fragile hollow bubble
Floating over a field
Of sickly scented roses;
Enveloped in thorns

Protruding and ever so near.

You leave me feeling
Like a flat, deflated tyre
Immaterial and expendable;
Mended many times before
A temporary fix.
Now a spare, until whenever.

You leave me feeling
Like a neglected puppy,
Starved for affection
Abandoned and alone.
Wanting to love and to be loved
Needing a happy home.

You leave me feeling
Like a subservient fool
Detaining the truth
Of just how I feel
From even myself
Choosing ignorance; for it is, 'bliss'.

And yet…….. I am still here.
