Figurative Keys (Spare Keys)

Reality Check

I can tell you what I want, but then you tell me what I need.

I fall silent because personally I don’t think you know me so…

I retreat to a place of confinement in my own mind determining that you just need time

To think about your actions and our interactions so maybe you can then say 

It’ll work out and adjust yourself so I won’t push you out

Of the way in the process of getting myself together for the betterment of myself

I can tell you what I want, but I can’t hear what I need,

I fall silent because personally I realized you do know me and I can’t make you 

Retreat to a place of confinement in your own mind because you know I need time

To myself to think about my actions and our interactions so maybe you can stay

Out of the way in the process of getting my emotions in check. 

I can tell you what I want, but maybe that’s not what you need. 

Silence.
