HIdden Costs

Since signing my life away
Fine print clauses translate
Into hard hitting laments terms
Italicized and underlined, taking turns
To highlight the undesirable aspects of our commitment
Juggling the mismatched jargon
To make sense of the situation
I at times find hard to
Keep hold of its attached demons
Sometime failing to catch the one component
That keeps me together
Costing me spiritually, promoting me to reappraise
The value in which I see myself being worth
Encouraging my opinions to depreciate steadily
Like my confidence and optimism towards love
Hoping in desperate naivety for a surge of reassurance
To make this relationship evade its undoing toll

Artist's Description

Why is love so hard? This is an evaluations of a friends relationship, but as I finished it I realised how all relationships can relate to this is a way. It’s almost my idea of a universal insight to our insecutiry in the relationships we have with others be it intimate or mutural.
