Jaded hearts and a Pocket full of Sunshine!

All the bizarre friends in my head keep me sound,
All the skepticism in my thoughts- makes me sick to the bone,
And I ignite the flames that burn my disguise,
The mask I would rather wear to go through my days,
And I cry with the sound of a million broken smiles,
I cry to get away from there,
I create dreams of the life I would rather have with the resentment of what it could have been,
I become happy with the smallest and silliest things, things that may not even exist in the real world, and yet are so potent in my head,
I’m a mind-boggling version of me, so amazing….so very real…

I’m self-righteous, but I care,
I’m stubborn, but I mature,
I’m selfish, but I love unconditionally,
I’m fixated, yet I unleash,
I’m free, but my feet are well grounded,
I’m an addict, but I’m restrained,
I’m fragile, but I’m strong-minded,
I’m victimized, but I’m optimistic,
I’m imperfect, but I’m sane,
My life….. my problem…
Don’t critic me, correct me,
Don’t pity me, accept me,
Don’t leave me, allow me,
Don’t disregard me, believe me…

Well...almost a winner again ! no doubt you have the art to convey too much in too little...the flow was coherent except for a line that says "correct me". I felt that for the personality that was built, it seemed to be too strict a word to accept, given the way he/she looks at life....just a thought !

Ah, I can empathise with the contradicting ambivalence in this piece. I like the list at the end of clauses.
Lovely.

My favorite line.."I become happy with the smallest and silliest things, things that may not even exist in the real world, and yet are so potent in my head." I can relate to that as well! Great work:)

Hi Pavitra...
I fell in love with the last four lines of your poem...
Especially “don’t critic me, correct me”
That’s a whole lot of wisdom and art of living rolled into one sentence...
