Something is Shifting
chrishunt

It's my twenty second year ,
 1
Twenty two leavings, and the same optimistic returns.
 2
Never get used to the abandonment , the emptiness , the
 3
" I am alone"
 4
I will never survive this time, but I do, life kicks in.
 5
The life I've made,  however absurd  it may be at times.
 6
It feels different or am I just having a good day, a reaction ?
 7
Trying to make you admire me, feel affection towards me ?
 8
My arms are starting to take shape , can feel muscle here and there
 9
My stomach feels taught, but no sign of muscle.
 10
Something is shifting,  I sense a few soft feeling.
 11
Real, not  manipulative, not pretend, they feel above all that.
 12
I may stop kicking out , stop the hate, take deep breaths, smile even.
