I'm not ready to meet you yet,
I need to have a mental breakdown
Or two
That I'd rather you didn't see.

You can meet me down the road
When my mess is just a story,
Part of my mysteriously alluring past
Not the painfully present now

It will seem so romantic,
My idealised mental anguish,
When you don't have to deal with it
Day after day

I'm sorry to tell you,
But please come back later
When I'm a bit saner
And you somewhat braver
And both a lot easier to love.

Very well written, matches how a person would actually speak. Last sentence is really sweet.

First stanza, third line; it stand out due to its length, but what gets me is the kind of human voice that comes with, "or two". That is how I would of said it if it was I in this situation. It is like an afterthought, but a blunt reality.

Very well done. :clap:

That's a really lovely comment, thanks so much. I really love it when people get those tiny little things that go into a piece like this. I love my writing to have a real human voice, so it really means so much when you pick up on that =) Thanks so much for the fave.

Oh, you are very welcome. Honestly, I am trying to get what I can from the work. I know that our common exchange on dA is a simple comment and thus, I try to break that up to give other people a fresher look.

Thank YOU for writing this. :nod:
