Poetry

Understood

Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘Don’t think I’ve ever understood. You’re a

hallucination and the closer I get, the further away

you seem to be from my skin.’ You’re trying too hard, I was

never here to begin with. More than a bedtime story, a

cautionary tale. What living in yourself looks like

after rejecting the souls that used to care.

    “You’re trying too hard, I was never here to begin with.

    The first speaks to me personally, and the second is VERY powerful. Great work.
